TPT ODBC Operator

The third party ODBC drivers which are required to stream this data are very expensive.  Please consider in a future release of TTU to allow the ODBC operator to be used with any ODBC driver even if it might be a litle slower than the third party drivers.  Thank you.

Starting in TPT 15.0 we bundle the DataDirect drivers with TPT.
You will need to download the latest efix patches in order to use those bundled drivers.

Hello,
 
We are using TPT 13.1 and we are trying to connect to Oracle using ODBC_OPERATOR on AIX. Could you please confirm the following
"Datadirect drivers need to be downloaded and installed on AIX"?
 
Is there any other way ?
 
Regards

TPT is only certified with ODBC drivers from Progress DataDirect.
 
You are free to use whatever ODBC drivers you like, but we will only offer support when you use the ones from Datadirect.
 
It is up to the user to obtain the drivers until TPT 15.0. Starting in 15.0 we bundle the drivers with TPT (however, you still need to contact us to obtain the license).

Hello,

 

Thank you for your quick reply.

 

I have tried with Teradata native 32bit bit odbc driver but getting the following error

 

TPT_INFRA: TPT01036: Error: Task (TaskID: 5, Task Name: SELECT_2[0001]) terminated due to the receipt of signal number 11

 

I have checked the previous posts and got that we need to move to latest TPT efix. We use the following TPT version and would like to know the latest version number?

 

Teradata Parallel Transporter Version 13.10.00.04

 

 

Regards

TPT 13.10.00.04 is quite old.
I think the infrastructure (which includes the ODBC operator) is up to 13.10.00.20.
I suggest you go to the patch server and download the latest patches for all of the TPT components. It is never a good idea to only upgrade one component.

The support of the bundling of the drivers was done post-GCA in an efix.
Please download all of the latest 15.0 efix patches TPT.
You will then need to contact Mark Haydostian (Mark.Haydostian@Teradata.com) for the license key.

Hi Steve,
where is the patches server where you should download efixes from?

You will most likely have to get to Teradata At Your Service.
I do not know the link.

Hi Steve, 
are these drivers bundled for all platforms (Windows, Linux, ...)? And for all Databases (SQL Server in my case)?
Thanks
Sven

They are bundled for most of the platforms we support (there are a few platforms that we support that DataDirect does not).
 
The bundled drivers cover Oracle, SQLServer and DB2 right now.
