Batch Install/Uninstall Text StringsFor your convenience, a text string that contains a set of parameter values for each product in a suite is in the following table. You can copy the appropriate text string for use with batch file commands.
Name of Product Suite Text String (set of parameter values)
Base BTEQ,FastExport,FastLoad,JMSAM,MultiLoad,NamedPipesAM,OLEDBAM,Preprocessor,SQLA,TDAdmin,TDNETDP,TDWallet,TPTBase,TPTStream,TPump,WebsphereAM,TDGeoSpatial,TeraJDBC

The command syntax for running a batch file is as follows:
  • batch_file_name "PRODUCT"
where batch_file_name is the name of the batch file:
  • silent_uninstall.bat
  • silent_install.bat
and where PRODUCT is a set of parameter values associated with the suite of products you are uninstalling.
The parameter values are case-sensitive. Be sure to include the quote marks ("") which must be formatted as straight quotes. Teradata recommends that you generate install scripts using a text editor to ensure straight quotes are used. The installation will fail otherwise. Separate the parameter values with a comma, but do not include a space. For example, to uninstall the products that are part of the Tape Storage Management suite, use the following command:
  • silent_uninstall.bat "ARC,Preprocessor,TDWallet"

Each silent_install.bat file is specific to a suite. For example, to install files from all three suites, you will need three silent_install.bat files.

When you run a batch file, the ODBC driver and all of the dependent products are installed or uninstalled automatically. You do not have to specify their parameter values. These products include the following:
  • Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Driver for Teradata
  • Shared ICU Libraries for Teradata
  • Teradata Call-Level Interface version 2
  • Teradata Data Connector API
  • Teradata GSS Administrative Package
