Users can store a Teradata Vantage password using an alias. For example:

  1. Log on to a Vantage client system and obtain a command prompt.
  2. Run the tdwallet tool on the client to add a Vantage user password to the user wallet.

    For example, on a UNIX client:

    $ tdwallet add  password_alias

    where password_alias is a character string. For example:

    PWalias1
  3. At the system prompt, enter the Vantage password that corresponds to the password alias, for example:
    MyTDPassword
