DBS Control parameters.

Hi All, 

How can we see all the DBS control parameters?

Also if I need to modify two parameters below ,  will it necessarily require server restart?

  1. System TimeZone String 
  2. TimeDateWZControl 

Also can someone please guide on best practice to be followed to change above parameters.

Use the dbscontrol utility to view and modify all DBS Control GDO values. This is explained in the Teradata Database Utilities reference manual

It is best to consult with the Global Support Center (i.e. open an incident) when the system tz needs to be changed.

Re: DBS Control parameters.

System Time Zone String is actually changed via tdlocaledef. But as noted, if you intend to change TimeDateWZControl you should involve Teradata support. If this is a brand new system with no user data loaded yet, it's simple. But on a "live" system there are a number of other things you may need to change.
