You must have already installed the new version of Teradata GSS Administrative Package and have a copy of the previously used TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file.

If you need to configure TeraGSS for a client, you must do so using an administrative package, although Teradata recommends not configuring it. See the appendix regarding Teradata GSS Administrative Package in Security Administration (B035-1100).
Use these steps to reuse the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file that you saved from the previous installation. For information on accessing and making changes to the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file, refer to Security Administration (B035-1100).

For the file paths listed in the steps below, prefix [or prefix (x86)] refers to the user selected directory (Program Files or Program Files (x86) are the default prefixes).

  1. Execute run_tdgssconfig to create the directory for the configuration file. It is located in the following directory:

    prefix\Teradata\Client\version\bin

  2. Copy TdgssUserConfigFile.xml to this directory: prefix\Teradata\Client\etc\site
  3. Execute run_tdgssconfig again to initialize the custom configuration. It is located in the following directory:

    prefix\Teradata\Client\version\bin
