  4. Choose Select an OVF template and then:
    1. Select Local file.
    2. Select Choose Files and browse to the .ova file that you downloaded.
    3. Click Next.
  5. Add a public network to the instance after deploying the .ova file.
    Wait for the deployment to complete.
  6. In the Navigator pane, right-click the VM and select Power > Power On.
  7. Once the VM instance is running, log on to the network using SSH with the following credentials:
    linux login: root
    Password: tdc
    The IP address is displayed on the Summary screen of the vSphere client.
  8. After login, configure the network:
    1. Gather the following information to run the network configuration script:
      • VM name (enter a hostname for this VM)
      • Public IP address (must be static)
      • Gateway IP address
      • Network domain
      • Primary DNS IP address
      • (Optional) Secondary DNS IP address
      • (Optional) Private IP address – only enter if a separate private network adapter is attached to the VM and you want to configure it.

    2. Run the network configuration script:
      # /var/opt/teradata/packages/DataMover/config-network-dm
      Allow several minutes for the script to complete configuration – before and after it restarts the VM. You can be run again at any time.
