Teradata Tools and Utilities (TTU) software permits communication between a Teradata Client workstation and Teradata Database, and includes many important utilities. Many of the Teradata Tools and Utilities products are installed on all Client platforms.

Each new major release of Teradata Database will operate properly with the previous major release of TTU. Upgrades can be phased in as needed after the migration. However, Teradata recommends that you use the release of TTU utilities that matches the target Teradata Database release. If you use a prior release of TTU, you may not have access to all of the security and other features available in the current Teradata Database release.

Certain software products are closely connected with the Teradata Database functionality. If you are using any of the following TTU products, you must upgrade them to the new release level before migrating to the new Teradata Database release level.
