Installing BTEQ on Solaris

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.

Appreciate your time.

There's no public download for the Solaris TTU via DevEx, you must be a Teradata customer to get it.

You need to logon to the Teradata @ Your Service patch server at tays.teradata.com
