How to Install and Configure Teradata Express 13.0 in Windows

Hi,

I download and installed the 390MB Teradata Express for Windows client from the page below

http://downloads.teradata.com/download/tools/teradata-tools-and-utilities-windows-installation-packa...

How did I install ?

  1. I downloaded the Zip file(390 MB), extracted it(400 plus MB) and executed setup.exe
  2. I chose silent install and it installed successfully
  3. In the middlie it asked for DSN; I created a DSN with teradata(someting) type and gave the DSN name; but i dint provide database name, username and password details when it prompted(i gave only DSN name that i created).
  4. Installation completed.

Issue :

When I opened Teradata SQL assistant it throwed some error " couldnt/didnot connect to teredata database"(though im not sure of the error).

Help I am expecting?

  1. I want to know if Teradata Database is installed.
  2. I want to configure Teradata tat i have installed. Can anyone help me in very detailed manner.
  3. I also want to test basic table in database.

Please help men in this regard(Configuring Teradata Express 13 Windows client installation package).

Thanks,

Shankar
