I'm running Win7 64bit and am connected to a v6.2 Teradata db in SQL Assistant 13.0, however none of the Views or Tables are showing up in the Data Source Explorer. I can query the Views just fine; just can't see them in the tree view.
Having same issue with XP Pro SP3 connect to Teradata v 12,0 DB with SLQ Assist 13. I get a 'HYT00: Query timeout expired' trying to expand a small DB in the SQL13 explorer. I can connect to another DB with same SQL13 session and have no problem. I have kown of others with similar problems but solutions vary. It can be a pain.
I suspect that you do not have access to the Data Dictionary Views.
Data Dictionary X-Views return the Objects (Tables, Views …) you have access rights to; for example try "Select * from DBC.TablesX". while Non-X-Views returns all Object (e.g. Select * from DBC.Tables).
Most DBAs allow access to X-Views but they might not grant access to non-x-views. Drivers (.NET Data Provider or ODBC) have options to switch between x-views and non-x-views.
As mentioned above there are 2 sets of dictionary views, and you may not have access to both. If you use Teradata.Net to connect you can set the 'Use X views' checkbox on the Advanced tab of the connection dialog. If you use ODBC the 'Use X views' checkbox is on the ODBC Data Source options dialog for the DSN you are using to connect.
