How to configure/enable RSG vproc in Teradata Express 13 for VMWare player

Hi,
By default there is no 'RSG' vproc configured as following vprocmanager output:
Vproc Rel. Node Can Crash Vproc Config Config Cluster/ Host TVS
Number Vproc# ID Move Count State Status Type Host No. Type Vproc
------ ------ ------ ----- ----- ------- -------- ------ -------- ----- -----
0* 1 1-01 Yes 0 ONLINE Online AMP 0 On 10238
1 2 1-01 Yes 0 ONLINE Online AMP 0 On 10237

10238 6 1-01 Yes 0 ONLINE N/A TVS 0 N/A N/A
16383 3 1-01 Yes 0 ONLINE Online PE 1 COP N/A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Could somebody know how to enable RSG? According to doc, we can use PUT(Parallel Upgrade Tool). However, I cannot find this tool in the VM.

Thanks,

To add the RSG vproc to the configuration, use the following procedure:

Step 1: Edit the vconfig.txt file (/etc/opt/teradata/tdconfig/vconfig.txt) using your preferred text editor. You just need to add a line at the end of the VPROC section to define a new vproc. Note the comment line, which is your guide to the order of the parameters. The RSG vproc will be VPROC 9215, TYPE 4. Enter the other parameters as shown below:

VPROC
#CL_ID VPROCID TYPE MOVABLE NODE_ID HGID ALLOCATOR SUBPOOL
0 0 1 Y 001-01 -1 10237 0
0 1 1 Y 001-01 -1 10238 1
0 16383 2 Y 001-01 1 -1 -1
0 8192 3 N 001-01 1 -1 -1
0 10237 5 Y 001-01 -1 -1 0
0 10238 5 Y 001-01 -1 -1 1
0 9215 4 N 001-01 -1 -1 -1

Tip: Make a backup copy of the original version before changing it.

Step 2: Execute the vconfig command in a shell window. (tip: execute "man vconfig" to learn more about the vconfig command.)

Step 3: Restart the DBS by executing the following command in a shell window:

tpareset -f "some comment"

That's all there is to it.
