Connectng from a 15.00 Client to a 15.10 Database

In order to solve a database issue, Teradat will be upgraded to 15.10 from 15.00
Can we continue to use our 15.00 to connect (i.e. is it offically supported?)

Many, but not all, of the Teradata client products offer forwards compatibility, meaning that they support connecting to a Teradata Database with a later release number than the client software.
For example, the Teradata JDBC Driver offers compatibility with the corresponding back 4 + current + forward 4 Teradata Database releases, but that is the most generous compatibility range. Most Teradata client software offers a narrower compatibility range.
If you are a customer, then please open an incident with Teradata Customer Support and ask about the specific list of Teradata client software you intend to use with a newer Teradata Database release.
