I've got Teradata 14.10 up and running on my Mac laptop. I've got Teradata Studio Express running and now I want to start using Viewpoint. There seems to be some hint in some of the posts that I've seen that you can easily startup Viewpoint on Teradata Express, but nothing that I've tried from any of the posts seems to work, which makes me wonder - is Viewpoint even availabe in the TDExpress14.10.00.02_Sles11_40GB.7z and if it is, how does one start it, since there doesn't seem to be any obvious place to start it up.
Never mind. I found a post that says Viewpoint doesn't come in my version: http://developer.teradata.com/database/articles/new-teradata-express-14-10-versions-available
Newbie to Teradata
I am trying to start Viewpoint by following the user guide. However, when I enter: “firefox &”
The website returns:
Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at www.novell.com.
That is fine, as internet may not be available on VM. You can start Viewpoint from other browser as well.
Yes. First you need to check if your viewpoint services are running or not
Eg: /etc/init/d/viewpoint status
If you get the status as running, then you can open firefox browser and type "http://localhost/c" - It might take some time for the viewpoint page to be displayed (Depending on your system configuration and VM configuration)
If you see viewpoint services are stopped then you can start the services by running the following command
then open the web browser and follow the above instructions.
In addition to running the viewpoint service you also need to have the dcs service running, otherwise you won't see any data in your vp portlets.
There is nothing that looks like viewpoint or dcs in my /etc/init.d for the same Teradata Express 14.10 others are looking at in this thread.
This is because you should have downloaded Teradata Express 14.10.00.02 SLES 11 for VMware (40GB) which does not come with Viewpoint.
For SLES 11 with viewpoint, download Teradata Express 14.10.00.02 SLES 10 with Viewpoint for VMware (1TB)
