I installed teradata from the demo cd on win xp. When I tried to access the database from sql assistant or bteq I am getting the following message-
10065 WSA E HostUnreach: The teradata server can't currently be reached over this network
I checked the services. The "teradata service control" is showing teradata is running but when i checked under services- teradata database service is stop. I manually started it but when i refreshed it again it went down. I checked the entry in the host file also , it is fine.
If you are checking the "Teradata Database Initiator" service, it is normal for that to show as "stopped". The services that should be running are: "Teradata GTW Reserve Port" and "Teradata inetd Service".
If the Teradata Service Control window shows that Teradata is running, you should be ready to go.
Are you connecting through the TdataDemo ODBC connection?
