After installing Teradata version 14.0 new on AIX v6.1 test box, I login using “bteq” command and then get the error “Warning: RDBMS CRASHED OR SESSIONS RESET. RECOVERY IN PROGRESS” and then just hangs until I can only kick out. Then receive "*** Warning: Exiting because of three BREAKs! *** Exiting BTEQ... *** RC (return code) = 2". Note: /etc/services file only lists “tdmst 1025/tcp” and “tpa” does not exist in /etc/init.d file. Components installed successfully. Thank you.
Most often, this is due to a network error of some sort which allows the initial logon handshake (very short messages) to succeed but data transmission (longer messages) fails.
You could enable CLIv2 trace (set COPANOMLOG=filename) and/or use a network trace to try to isolate the problem.
run command in terminal: /etc/init.d/tpa start
It does release some pending locks/tasks, and forcefully start teradata database service.
