Teradata studio express new database creation

Hi All,

 

I have installed Teradata studio express in my local machine(windows 10). Before that i have installed JRE too. While creating new database connection i am getting that testServer host not found. 

 

Can you please suggest me how to reslove this error. and one more note that its not running on VMware so it is necessary?

Hi,

I'm guessing that you've got the wrong value in the 'database server' text box.This needs to be the ip address, dns name, hosts file name for your Teradata server.

What happens if you open a command prompt and ping testserver? I'm guessing it fails.

Start with that and then see where we get to. Once you can get the ping command working then that is probably the value that you need in your 'database server' text box.

It doesn't matter what type of Teradata system you're trying to connect to, the steps / rules are the same.

Cheers,

Dave

Thanks Dave.

 

I have downloaded teradata studio express from below link:

http://downloads.teradata.com/download/tools/teradata-studio-express

 

In this they dont have mention that i need any teradata external server. So can you please help me with that.

I think here for demo purpose or for personal use we can use test server which is providing by Teradata Studio Express.

 

Please some help me with this

Hi,

Sorry, but Teradata Studio is a client tool only, it does not contain a database server. That needs to be supplied and setup separately, but it isn't that hard.

Search on the Teradata download area for 'Teradata Express'. There are numerous versions and sizes available. Most of them are VMWare vm's, so you'll also need vmware software to run them, but you can use vmplayer (or whatever it is called now) to do that. All of this software is free.

Once you've got the dbms server 'up and running' then you can start a client tool to connect to it.

Cheers,

Dave
