Log on

Use the Teradata SET command‑line interface to log on to a Teradata Database using either ODBC or CLIv2 connectivity.

Use the following command syntax to log on to a Teradata Database:

tset [-c|-l] <DSN_or_tdpid>\<username>\<password>
     [-am <Authentication Mechanism>\<Authentication Parameter>]
     [-scs <Session characterset>]

Note: When only the log‑on switch is specified in the command, the application remains open after a connection is established regardless of the xapp switch.

The following examples demonstrate ways to log on from the command line.
