Re: Stop Teradata services from command prompt

Hi all,
Thanks for the answer.

When we give the command at the command prompt as
tpareset -x -y

It says..........
tpareset: Reason for the reset must be specified.

Why is it so?
Are there many reasons to be specified ? if so what are they?
does tpa in tpareset stands for "Trusted Parallel Application" ?
If not ... what does that mean?

Also request you to explain the command
net start recond

You can key in anything you want, this text is just used as an explanantion for the reset within the dbc.software_eventlog.

yes

It's the windows command to start a service, recond is the "Teradata Database Initiator" service, which just kicks off the database start and the stops again.
