I am new to Teradata. I have knowledge on Oracle. Recently I installed Teradata 13 version on my lap through VM. I completely installed Teradata tools and utilities. Now I am not able to connect to Teradata through SQL Assistant. While I tried to connect it's showing Error. Below the error log:
The version of SQL Assistant that you are running is almost 5 years old. The latest version for TTU 13.0 [still old] is 188.8.131.52.
You can however use newer versions of SQL assistant with older versions of the database, and TTU.
The latest version is 15.0.
I don't see any fixes for connection problems in the 13.0 efixes higher than the one you are running.
The line where it fails is when it calls the main connect function in ODBC so there is a very good chance that the error is occuring in ODBC rather than SQL assistant.
[If the failure occurs after it displays the data source selection dialog then it definately occurs in ODBC, otherwise it might be in either]
The only thing I can think to check would be that you have installed [and created data sources for] the 32bit version of ODBC rather than the 64bit version.
I would suggest upgrading to a newer version of SQL Assistant - and probably to newer versions of ODBC and the rest of the TTU stack.
conStrBuilder.DataSource = "tdserver.com";
conStrBuilder.Database = "mydb";
conStrBuilder.UserId = "myuid";
conStrBuilder.Password = "mypw";
conStrBuilder.AuthenticationMechanism = "TD2";
Venkat, that memory error is nasty and I concur with Mike that you need to be higher than that to make some progress. I would add that the higher versions of the teradata client are free and publicly available. You don't want to go higher than you datbase though and you can see that with:
select * from dbc.dbcinfo
once you get past that you need to understand what kind of connectivity the database has in your environment. The older connectivity is a unique teradata userid and looks like what is shown above. If you use your windows password to log on to teradata then you would need to change the AuthenticationMechanism to LDAP

receiving the above error while logging to Teradata SQL Assistant. Please help me someone.
