Purpose

The DISABLE command sets a specified flag in the file system to FALSE. This disables certain features of Filer.

Syntax



flag
Specifies the flag that will be set to false. The following flags are available:
  • LOCKING

    When locking is disabled, Filer does not observe the file system locking protocols, which normally prevent system hangs and deadlocks. This flag should only be disabled when Teradata Database is in the Debug-Stop state.

  • SCRIPT, SCRIPT MODE, and SCRIPTMODE

    When script mode is disabled, the Filer ABORT and INQUIRE commands are enabled. Script mode is disabled by default. Script mode should be enabled before running scripts that call Filer.

The following flags are for internal use only, and should not be disabled or enabled:
  • CHECK and CHECKTS
  • PANIC
  • STOP
  • SUSPEND
  • TPARESET
  • TRACE
