We've run into a snag trying to import the Teradata 12 1 TB VM into our enterprise vSphere 4.0 VMWare environment. When we import the VM as is, it shows in the list as sles10 (invalid) and cannot be used. We then ran it through the conversion utility that VMWare provides while converting to thin disks (as we don't have 1TB of disk available right now). This failed at 56% with a non-descript error. We re-ran the conversion and it failed again at roughly the same point.
So my question is this. Has anyone successfully gotten one of the Teradata VMs running in a vSphere environment? What hoops did you have to jump through to get it done?
The main question is - are you teradata customer? If you are and have regular teradata linux version, just download from teradata@your service tdbms patchset equivalent to Teradata Express for VMWare version, copy vconfig executable to say Teradata 12 40GB, edit vconfig.txt, rebuild and change disk size as you wish. We doing this a lot to save time for new test environment installation and running both teradata express 12 and 13 on VMWare ESXi servers without issues.
