The nodenames utility displays a list of network interfaces on the node where it is run. It is used internally by the tlsutil utility and can also be run from the command line.

The information provided by nodenames is helpful when you generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) because it provides the common name (CN) and subject alternative names (SANs) that are used in the CSR.

Use the first name produced by nodenames as the CN attribute. Include all the names produced by nodenames in the SANs, including the CN name.

nodenames Syntax

nodenames [-v] database_name ...

Syntax Elements

-v
Optional. Displays verbose output.
database_name
One or more names of the database. Teradata recommends using the fully qualified name of the database. For example: mydb.example.com.
The fully qualified database name must be in DNS for nodenames to recognize it.

nodenames Example

From the command line, run:

#/opt/teradata/tdgss/bin/nodenames mydb.example.com
