Installation and configuration of Teradata 15 on my home laptop with Windows 8.1 OS

Hello Folks ,

I just wanted to download Teradata 15 and install the same in my home laptop.

I did installation of Terdata 15 but not able to create connection, as it is asking for IP address/username/password...

What is the step for installation and connection creation of the Teradata 15 in home laptop with Windows OS 8.1?

I read somewhere that you would need to install with VMware only. Is it really required VMware or we could install and access it without Vmware?

Can someone pls give the step for the same.

Thanks,

See http://downloads.teradata.com/download/database/teradata-express/vmware

Yes, free VMWare Player will be needed to run Teradata Express database. Most likely what you already installed is Teradata client utilities.

Hi SS29,

Seems like you would have installed Teradata Studio Express, which is just a client to access Teradata from a LAN (similar to SQL assistant).

If you want to access Teradata 15 from your personal laptop, you must download and setup the VMWare edition of Teradata Express. You may chose your preferred version from the below mentione link.
