Hi, This is my first post on this forum. My query is that we are in the process of setting up BTEQ on our new Solaris 10 server. I tried searching for any possible guides which could help me with the process on how to obtain the BTEQ installable and then how to install it, but did not find much help. Kindly let me know if anyone has any pointers regarding this.
You can find the instructions to install Teradata Utilities on solaris servers in Teradata Documenatation.
