connection profile where is stored

hello,

 

We are using TDS 15.12 on various windows flavors.

Since we have many personal computer and users that use it we have have automatized the installation of the software. 

 

So where are stored the information about the connection profile?

We would like to configure the connection profile automatically within our script fpor the installation so the final user do not have to do the initial configuration.

 

thank you, ciao

Following the instruction on "Teradata Studio, Studio Express, and Plug-in for Eclipse Installation Guide, Release 15.12", editing the TeradataStudioDataSources.config and running the setup.exe I'm able to pre-configure the connection profile on TDS.

How?

 

We have several personal computer where to install or to upgrade the TDS so we can't run the setup.exe on every machine manually.
We have tried to "silent" install TDS with the command :

msiexec /i "<path_to>\TERADATA STUDIO.MSI" /quiet /qn /norestart /l* "PKGIST_TERADATASTUDIO__WIN32_X86.15.12.02.00.log"

but in this case how to use and to point the file TeradataStudioDataSources.config ?

 

There are other method to silent install TDS?

 

thank you, ciao

Check the Studio / Studio Express Installation Guide (available at www.info.teradata.com) for information on how to pre-configure connection profiles and preferences.

You can provide a pre-config connection profile file (.xml) during the Studio install on Windows that includes the connection profile information.  This can also be run during silent install. This is described in the Installation Guide as well.
