TD Express on MacBook Pro Topic by Q 21 Nov 2009 mac, vmware, queryman

I got TD13 Express 1TB running in VMWare under Snow Leopard. Connect great with local linux utilities (bteq, tpt, etc...) Does anyone know how to external clients to connect into my VMWare instance via IP? Or is it forever a local sandbox? It must be a VMWare setting???

Teradata Express VMware 13.0 practice data Topic by dcastor 17 Oct 2011

First off, it appears that I posted my previous posts in the incorrect forum -- my apologies. I was aiming to get some guidance on how and where to get the practice data that comes with the Express download, as well as some info on where to utilize the tools and utilities.

Teradata 12 1 TB VM in vSphere 4.0 Topic by mnylin 28 Mar 2011 teradata express, vmware, private cloude

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.

Interaction between two Clouds Topic by snehalmasne 27 Dec 2010

I have setup the Cloud-A and I have another Cloud-B with same configuration. Say there are multiple clouds. A user is subscribed to any one of them, say Cloud-A for IaaS. As the requirements are dynamic, all the resources of Cloud-A may get exhausted. There may be another Cloud-B which can provide the services but that Cloud-A can't ask the client to go for Cloud-B.

So if it is possible to have some co-ordination between this two providers to share resources mutually, making client fully unaware of whats going on in the background....?

Please reply..

The constant rush to new fads and fashions in the Information Technology industry have done little to improve overall software quality; and as computing moves to the cloud, apparently out of our control, quality becomes even more important. Satellite launches famously fail, medical devices famously overdose patients and engines still shut down in flight.

SUSE VMware image of TD13 Express dies intermittently Topic by ravenAtSafeSoftware 15 Feb 2010 teradata express, vmware

After a month and half of flawless execution, my TD13 Express VMware installation (as downloaded from Teradata) has begun to flake out on me. Every couple of days it stops responding to network connections and has to be restarted from within VMWare.

VMWare reports the image as using all available CPU power during these events.

Any suggestions?

Creating new DB without TD Admin / DB Manager (Windows client) Topic by tomthebuzz 27 Apr 2010 set-up, new db, td13 express, vm

Hi All,

I have the 1TB version of TD13 running on a MacBook VMWare Fusion workstation and everything is working / starting fine. Being a newbie to the native TD toolset,
how do I create new DBs and assign space without the graphical UI like TD Admin (on Windows). As I'm in the MAC OS X as VM host I do not have access to any windows
client. I understood that I should be able to do this using BTEQ, alone the whole library doesn't reference any termin / native BTEQ syntax.
