I'm hoping that ANYONE can help me figure this out.  I have been unable - for the last few days - to connect ANY application to the TDExpress DB's in either version 13.10 or 14.00 on VMWare.  As an aside, it did work I know it's possible.

TD 14 on EC2 hangs at 100% CPU requiring reboot Topic by jharris 06 Oct 2014 td 14.0, ec2, amazon, 100% CPU, server hangs
  • Used the Teradata 14 supplied image for installing on Amazon's EC2 and followed the TD installation guide.
  • No users, no load, no jobs -- nothing happening from the user environment -- the server is in an idle state.
  • Every few hours (6 - 24) the CPU will go from 2% to 100% CPU usage, the system looses all SSH connections and the server needs to be rebooted.

EC2 instance not running Sysinit / DIP ? Topic by DaveWellman 16 Jan 2012

I'm trying to get a TD13.10 instance running and am having problems.

I've worked through the article about 'how to set up an EC2 instance',  'translating' from TD12 to 13.10 where necessary and get to the stage where I login to my instance and run the TD 'initialization' scripts.

I get asked to set the DBC password (which I set to 'DBC').

Getting Internet Access from TD13 SuSe VM Instance Topic by Willimoa 10 Dec 2009

Hello, My question relates more to the VM Instance than to Teradata, but I think this is a topic most would be interested in.
I have got Teradata up and running on the VM Instance but I want to connect to the internet and access shared folders. I notice the instance is setup for NAT Network Connection, but what else is necessary to get internet access ? I'm not sure if it is a VMWare issue, or settings within the guest or host OS. Can I "Ping" the host OS if I am using NAT ?
