Indicates a configuration problem
Install package containing the hardware compression support library if 1) System should continue using ELZS_H or ELZS_S compression as specified in DBS Control GDO or 2) There's existing data on the system that was previously compressed with either ELZS_H or ELZS_S, irrespective of what algorithm is currently specified in DBS Control GDO, so that the compressed data can be uncompressed/accessed and recompressed using the selected algorithm or left uncompressed as desired. Otherwise, specify another compression algorithm if there's no data on the system that was previously compressed using ELZS_H or ELZS_S. On platforms (2690, 2700, 2750) that have Exar hardware compression cards install packages 1) teradata-expressdx 2) teradata-libeLZS Otherwise, install package teradata-libeLZS.
