Speed of TD12 vmware version versus TD13 Topic by walter.perz 10 Feb 2010 vmware, speed

I've worked with both versions a bit, and TD12 (not the database, just the image itself) takes a LOT longer to start up than the equivalent TD13 version (I'm using 1TB versions of each). I've configured them the same (cpu, memory, network).

Any thoughts as to why 12 is so much slower than 13?

Licence errors from VMware server when trying to start SLES10_TD1300 Topic by james 17 Nov 2009

Need some help with licenses. I am unable to start the virtual machine in VMware server 2.02. I have the 40GB version of TD Express 13.0 installed and its showing in the inventory. All attempts to start this VM give me the error "Power On Virtual Machine failed to complete... Details: There are not enough licenses installed to perform the operation."

Its not clear to me if this is a VMware licence issue, or TD Express-related.

Is there any way to control the size of the virtual machine for my small laptop disk? Topic by Teradactyl 08 Mar 2010 vm disk space

My laptop only has an 80 GB disk. I want to run the Teradata Express 13.0 Virtual machine, and my laptop meets all of the requirements for this. It's nice that the initial installation size starts out at 10 GB. I can fit that in my laptop. The standard version has a Teradata capacity of 40 GB, starting out with a 2 GB pdisk. That 40 GB has me concerned.

Setting up Elastic Marts Builder to access different TD database Topic by plentyfish 14 May 2010

Hi all,

I'm installing Elastic Marts Builder (EMB) - but as per installation guide, it seems you can only assign it to one Teradata database. Is there a way I can set it up so users can create EMB objects to different databases, say accounting users have access to build their tables, views etc to DB-X and marketing use DB-Y ? Our Teradata system is v12.
