Is it a single node system?

Is the node not starting or is just Teradata down?

Can you ssh to the system?

Could you ask anyone who is doing ETL or UDFs?

There should be someone else in your company (besides the dba) who knows that :-)

Its a 2 node system ,with one down ( back up node has kicked in though ).

I am the one doing ETL :-)

1. Use putty to connect to the live node using ssh 

2. Enter "uname -a" at the command prompt
