Hello, Have gone through previous posts on this, but still no luck. I've installed V2 R6 from Teradata Warehouse 8.1 demo CD. On a Windows 2003 server. Brand new, no other applications installed on it yet. Installed: -BYNET driver -database -tools and utilities -demo applications then on the system DSN: I configured the data source with: Name = DemoTDAT ip= 127.0.0.1 (machine name) and left the option "do not resolve alias name with IP address" unchecked. user name and password dbc.
checked in Windows services: Bynet, Teradata GTWand inetd all running.
All on same server machine and am trying to test the connection from the same server machine.
Then if I launch Teradata Administrator and try to connect to DemoTDat, I still get the error: "10065 WSA E HostUnreach: The Teradata server can't currently be reached over this network.
in a cmd prompt, I did: pdestate I get: PDE state is RUN/Ready
Then: telnet localhost 1025 I get: could not open connection to the host, on port 1025: connect failed
Then: telnet localhost I get: could not open connection to the host, on port 23: connect failed (why port 23??)
my hosts file looks like this: 127.0.0.1 localhost DemoTDAT DemoTDATcop1 dbc dbccop1 I have also tried changing it to: 127.0.0.1 localhost DemoTDAT DemoTDATcop1 and 127.0.0.1 localhost DemoTDAT and restarted TD services after each change, but get the same results.
using a port sniffer: - I don't see Teradata GTW Reserve Port in the list - port 1025 does not appear to be in use.
I am user admin with full rights to that machine and have installed TD with this user.
I've already re-installed and tried installing on a different (also blank) Wondows 2003 server. AV and firewall are off.
ONe final thing: launching TD Service COntrol, I can see TD IS running, but in the bottom of the screen, I see: "PLease wait..." Is this normal?
Any ideas of what's going wrong? Many thanks for any suggestions. C
