How long does reconfig typically take?

Trying to install an instance of V2R6.1.1 on Windows 2003, and PUT seems to be stuck on reconfig, pdestate shows the following:

PDE state is RUN/STARTED.
DBS state is 6: RECONFIG is running

I've let this run for up to several hours, but nothing seems to update after the initial start. I'll search for log files updated by timestampt, but nothing obvious is being written.

The server has approximately 1.8 TB of attached storage.

Thanks,
Pat

Re: How long does reconfig typically take?

There are many factors that impact the runtime of reconfig. First off, the size of the system, the relative growth, the configuration (#VPROCS), disc per VPROC.
Thats why Teradata uses a reconfig estimator for their own configurations and even then the estimates are sometimes way off.
