Re: How to install TERADATA CLI Libraries in UNIX Server(AIX-6.1)

Hi Carlos,

I go through the documentation of Teradata installation. I have few queries in it :

#1. Will it be possible to install TERADATA on UNIX server with the mech-id or we need root access on the server?

#2.   Is the CLI user exit functions are necessary to install? What’s the purpose of this user exist for the normal operation?

#3. While Configuring the ODBC Driver for IBM AIX  why would we copy the odbc.ini in the HOME directory?

Could you please help in this regards.

Thanks,

Jatin

#1. Will it be possible to install TERADATA on UNIX server with the mech-id or we need root access on the server?

From the docco:

How to install this package:

1.  Log on to AIX-POWER system as root user.

#2.   Is the CLI user exit functions are necessary to install? What’s the purpose of this user exist for the normal operation?

No if you are not going to use user-defined processing.

#3. While Configuring the ODBC Driver for IBM AIX  why would we copy the odbc.ini in the HOME directory?

From the docco:

An odbc.ini file is provided in the root directory where the ODBC Driver for Teradata software was installed. Copy this file into your home directory and rename it (with a leading dot) to odbc.ini before using the driver.

Although the system expects the .odbc.ini file to be in your home directory, the ODBCINI environment variable may be used to specify a different pathname of the .odbc.ini file. The .odbc.ini file is a hidden file.

The following expression is an example of the command for copying the .ini file:

cp /usr/odbc/odbc.ini $HOME/.odbc.ini

HTH.

Cheers.

Carlos.
