Before installing Teradata Notification Service, verify the following:
  • Teradata Viewpoint server is set up and running.
  • Alert Services are running on the Viewpoint Server.
  • You have the hostname or IP address of the Teradata Viewpoint server.
  • You have installed a 32-bit Java Runtime Environment 7.
    If installing version or later, use Java Runtime Environment 8.
  • The JAVA_HOME environment variable is defined at the System (not at the User) level. This is important because the Teradata Notification Service runs as a service. The process depends on Windows 7 and later operating system. You must log on as an administrator to change System-level environment variables.
  1. From Control Panel, select System and Security.
  2. Select System.
  3. Select Advanced system settings.
  4. Click Environment Variables.
  5. Click New, located under System variables, to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
