The configuration file contains parameters that determine the default behavior for Teradata Parallel Transporter Base, such as default checkpoint and log directories. These must be selected.
  • Edit the configuration file and specify the Teradata Parallel Transporter default directory and default log directory. CheckpointDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/short version/tbuild/checkpoint', where
    • CheckpointDirectory is the directory that contains the checkpoint files for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs
    • short version is the product version in short form (for example, 15.10)
    LogDirectory='/opt/teradata/client/short version/tbuild/logs', where
    • LogDirectory is the directory that contains the binary logs for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs
    • short version is the product version in short form (for example, 15.10)

    Each Teradata Parallel Transporter job creates a job log in the jobs directory. Refer to Teradata Parallel Transporter Reference, B035-2436 on how to read the job log.
