problem connecting to Teradata Express from another VM Guest

Hello,

I have a problem connecting with Teradata Studio to the Teradata Express database.

My configuration is:

Host machine with Windows 7 (64 bit), with VMWare Player 5 and two VM guests:

- VM Guest with TDExpress14.0.3_Sles10_40GB (Teradata Express database on Linux)

- VM Guest with Windows 7 and TeradataStudio__win64_x86.14.10.00.00 (Teradata Studio for Windows)

Both VM Guests have their network adapater/connection 'Bridged'.

On the Windows VM Guest also Java is installed.

The Linux VM Guest has an IP adres of 192.168.0.255

On the Windows guest, in a dos prompt I can ping the Linux server with this IP adres.

But when in Teradata Studio, I make a connection, and try 'test connection', I get 'Ping failed'.

I tried as database servername the IP adres, and the Linux servername (which is TDExpress1403_Sles10), but both give the same result (Ping failed).

user/password/database = dbc/dbc/dbc

Any suggestions about what could be wrong ?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,

Andre.

Re: problem connecting to Teradata Express from another VM Guest

I found the problem. I used the wrong IP address of the Teradata VM Guest.

The right IP adres can be found with ifconfig (in a 'Gnome terminal' session).

My ifconfig on my Teradata machine looks like this:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0C:29:01:03:9B

          inet addr: 192.168.0.118  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

          inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe01:39b/64 Scope:Link

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

          RX bytes:96493 (94.2 Kb)  TX bytes:96493 (94.2 Kb)

The right IP address is the one marked in bold.

I saw this in a post of AndrewSchroter, many thanks !

Hi ,

I downlaoded and copied the Teradata 14 SLES 10 VP 40 GB Version, but while selecting it gives me an error message : Your CPU does not support long mode, Use a 32 bit distribution. VM guys mention that the CPU is 64 bit, but not sure why its still giving, any clue?
