I want to start using a Viewpoint AMI so that I can connect my other Teradata instances to it and start monitoring, running backup jobs, and etc. What is the proper way to launch and set up a Viewpoint image on AWS?
Here is the link to the official document for configuring Teradata Viewpoint
Basically, you need to first launch a Viewpoint AMI, make sure the incoming ports are set up correctly, create proper users on the database image, and configure Viewpoint. I will explain these in detail below.
Launch a Viewpoint AMI
Follow the setup guide to launch a Viewpoint instance
Make sure the incoming ports of the Database image is set correctly
Create viewpoint and console user in the database image
CREATE USER viewpoint AS PERM=1e9 SPOOL=5e10 PASSWORD=[your_password];
CREATE USER console AS PERM=50000 SPOOL=50000 ACCOUNT=’$H-remote-console-user’ password=[your_password] FALLBACK;
Connect a database instance to Viewpoint
