tar_teradata_client_packages list platform

Lists the products for a specific platform that are available on the installation media
  • Run the script with platform as the first parameter to create a tar file in the default target path. The resulting archive contains all Teradata client packages on the media for that platform.
    The value of the platform parameter can be one of the following:
    • aix
    • i386
    • ia64
    • opteron
    • pa-risc
    • s390x
    • sparc

    The path for the output can be changed. The output filename is in the following format:

    teradata-client-platform-media-name.tar. If the archive is compressed with gzip.exe, the script appends .gz to the filename.

  • Run the script with platform as the second parameter after the list parameter to list the packages available for the specified platform.

tar_teradata_client_packages platform package

Creates a tar file for a specific platform and one package

Add the name of a package after the platform parameter. For example, to archive the bteq package for the aix platform, type:

tar_teradata_client_packages aix bteq

If you specify a package other than a dependent package, all of the following dependent packages are included in the archive:
  • cliv2
  • piom
  • tdicu
  • teragss

If you specify package names after the platform parameter, the script includes the dependent packages if they are available on the media.

If you specify individual packages, all of the dependendent packages are included in the archive.

tar_teradata_client_packages platform package1 package2 etc.

Creates a tar file for a specific platform and specific packages

If you specify package names after the platform parameter, the script includes the dependent packages if they are available on the media.

If you specify individual packages, all of the dependendent packages are included in the archive.
