Re: Teradata Express 14.0 for VMware now available

I am trying to use the viewpoint using firefox. I am getting an error

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure

that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi Cliff,

Currently I am working for a service based vendor organization.

We are planning to have TeraData 14 VMware edition as our test and Dev environments for one of our clients. Could you please help me to highlight the drawbacks or limitations while using this edition in real time.

Thanks in Advance

Re: Teradata Express 14.0 for VMware now available

Hi,

I am from mainframes background, so bit alien to installation. I have successfully installed VMware player and Teradata express. But whenever I start studio express from VMware, it asks me to establish connection. For which it asks me DSN and User and Password. What values should I give so that I can see the tables and start practicing queries on it.

You should use 127.0.0.1

User is dbc

Password is dbc

Limitations of TD Express on VMware Player are pretty much limited to the inability to patch to the latest Teradata patch level and performance. They are all 2 AMP/2 Disk configurations and will be slowed down by running on VMware Player and whatever limitations the compter you are using has. Otherwise, it performs like a real Teradata system.

Hi,

Thanks for replying, got it connected, working fine. I am able to use Teradata Studio Express with Teradata Express. One more question, where can I find other utilities for Teradata like SQL Assitant, TPT, Multiload and fastload so that I can use with Teradat Express.

Thanks in advance

Hi

I got the same "Unable to connect" error as what haribabutd got a week ago. My VMware image is TDExpress14.0.3_Sles10 4GB. 

I have tried the following in Firefox. 127.0.0.1 and localhost are mapped in my hosts file.

http://localhost


http:/localhost/c

I also pinged 127.0.01 which shows

TDExpress14.0.3_Sles10:/opt/teradata/viewpoint/bin # ping 127.0.0.1

PING 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.037 ms

After clicking on the icon "Start Viewpoint" all the services started.

Starting Viewpoint                                                    done

The VMware image only provides Firefox browser and I don't have IE to try.

Can anyone help? Much appreciated!

Hi Cliff,

Any word on when a 14.10 image will be available?  Also, do most people run VMware or the Eclipse plug-in?  thx
