ODBC Driver for Teradata can connect to Teradata Database using an IP-address (IPv4 or IPv6), an alias name, or a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).

The setup library used for configuring Teradata DSN entries resolves alias names to avoid delaying the connect process. When the alias name is resolved by the setup process, the DSN entry contains the IP address followed by the resolved name.
