You can attach more than one host simultaneously to the Teradata Database. The hosts are identified in the configuration by:

  • A host number
  • A logical host ID
  • An associated host type designator

You assign the host a number between 1 and 1023.

The host type designator specifies the host data format.

The system generates the16-bit logical host ID based on the assigned host number and the host type. The value is equal to the host number + the host type value.
