Is it possible to force BTEQ to immediately exit and not wait when the Teradata system being logged in to is down?
Teradata BTEQ 16.10.00.01 for LINUX. Enter your logon or BTEQ command:
*** Warning: RDBMS CRASHED OR SESSIONS RESET. RECOVERY IN PROGRESS.
BTEQ added an EXITONDELAY command in 15.10, this should provide what you need (never tested it).
