Informatica Teradata Connection

Hi everybody.

I have installed teradata express 14.10 edition in vmware player. I can log on using dbc/dbc from bteq but I have no 

idea how to connect teradata sql assistant to database. Should I install sql assistant in vmware player or can I install into local

windows 7 and connecct ? And one more question related to informatica, does anyone know how can I create teradata databaase connection

in informatica. I installed teradata odbc driver in my computer and tried to create connection between informatica and

teradata but got error at data source. The environment is informatica 9.5.1 is install in my local machine windows 7 and teradata

express edition is vmware player. I am quit new to teradata but very good in Oracle, Sql server, DB2 etc. Once set up ready I could

go ahead but can't start.

Sincerly,

Thank You

Hi,

Yes, you will have to install Teradata client to connect to database.

I have downloaded the inbuilt VM given by Teradata and played it in VMPlayer and I am good to go.

It will take you trough a qizard which will have series screen which will need I/P like Hostname, user, password and database name.

Cheers!
