Hi.

 

TTU's are utilities. If you installed the TTU's on a plain vanilla linux system (or docker or whatever) you need to connect to a Teradata System (a VMware Teradata virtual machine, for example).

TTU's don't install the Teradata Database on your system.

 

Cheers.

Hi Carlos,

 

thanks for your reply. I thought TTU´s contains all the needed stuff to run Teradata Database.

Here is what i want to do:  installation of Teradata database on a linux system (docker image).

Is it possible?

If yes how can i achieve it?

Or the only way to achieve what i want to do is the way with a VMware virtual machine?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

 

I don't think you can install TD database on docker. The TD database is tightly coupled with the OS layer (PDE). Your best bet is to install a VMware virtual machine, which you can download and use for free, and then connect from your docker TTU's to it. 

 

HTH.

 

Cheers.

No, TTU does not include the Teradata Database.
