I'm using Teradata VM Edition to make some development before production deployment. During my development process, I need to backup databases. I can't find any tool installed on VM (ABU, ARCMAIN), so I'm wondering what is the best solution to make backups on my DEV environment ?
Is the database copy the only way to backup a database on VM edition ?
Don't know what version/release of TVME you are running, I believe as of TVME 15.00 ABU is installed (will probably need to be configured) into the image and is the only option with limited support.
Other not so support option without arcmain would be to copy out the DDL in text form and fast-export any table data to flat files (would also lose various bit of metadata with this method).
