Teradata Parallel Transporter allows a user-specified installation directory. The default installation directory for Teradata Parallel Transporter is /opt/teradata/client/version/tbuild.

where: version is the version number for Teradata Parallel Transporter.

For example, the default installation directory for Teradata Parallel Transporter version 14.10.00.00 is:

/opt/teradata/client/14.10/tbuild
The following are the restrictions on the installation directory for Teradata Parallel Transporter:
  • The installation directory cannot be a relative directory path
  • The pipe character “|” cannot be in the name of the installation directory
  • The double quote character cannot be in the name of the installation directory
  • The equal character “=” cannot be in the name of the installation directory
  • The whitespace character cannot be in the name of the installation directory

The first Teradata Parallel Transporter package requests the installation directory. Subsequent Teradata Parallel Transporter packages of the same version do not request the installation directory, but use the same installation directory as the first package installed.

For example, the installation of Teradata Parallel Transporter Base 14.10.00.01 overwrites the Teradata Parallel Transporter Base 14.10.00.00 package.
