TDPUSER

I'm seeing a user TDPUSER under DBC. Does anyone have any idea of what the user is why this user is created in Teradata.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Re: TDPUSER

TDPUSER is created automatically during system installation. It may be used by the TDP on channel-attached systems to create sessions for internal administratiive purposes.

Re: TDPUSER

Thanks Jim. That really helped.

Can you also provide reason why PUBLIC, tdwm and tdwstage are used.

Thanks

Re: TDPUSER

PUBLIC is not a real user. It serves as a dummy key for public rights in DBC.AccessRights.

TDWM and TDWSTAGE must be for the Teradata Workload Manager, but I don't know how they are used.
