I have invoked the Minimum Production cloudformation template and constructed a Teradata ecosystem accordingly. I can logon to the database, upload data, do useful work and manage things with Viewpoint.
But now I want to take some backups so I'm attempting to configure the DSC but the dsu-init script fails.
Has anybody experienced this, are there known problems, has anyone successfully configured DSC?

yes that is exactly right.
once you do sudo su - then it picks up the root user environment properly with the the appropriate envvar settings and it all works a great deal better.
I opened JIRA TDBAR-24713 to request that engineering prevent this failure in the event that the customer fails to become root using:
# sudo su
instead of the method documented in the manuals that use the dash "-":
# sudo su -
