Teradata Tools and Utilities

An install configuration file (ttu_install.cfg) can be used to change the default behavior during install. Teradata recommends placing the file in the /var/opt/teradata directory.

Other options for placing the file:
  • Set the environment variable TTU_INSTALL_CFG to point to a preferred location. For example, if the file is located in the /usr/teradata directory, run the following command:

    export TTU_INSTALL_CFG=/usr/teradata

  • Place ttu_install.cfg in the user's HOME directory.
    These locations will be scanned only if no file by name ttu_install.cfg is found in /var/opt/teradata.
Teradata Tools and Utilities supports the following options (case-insensitive) within the configuration file ttu_install.cfg:
  • InstallDir=prefix
  • ShareLibs=yes|no
  • BinPath=Back|Front

The ttu_install.cfg file can also specified by the path in the environment variable TTU_INSTALL_CFG or in the user's home directory. If the ttu_install.cfg file is not found, then the value of SharedLibs default to yes.

OptionName Value Meaning
InstallDir prefix Install root location; for example, InstallDir=/abc
ShareLibs no Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib, /usr/lib64, /usr/include, and /usr/bin.
ShareLibs yes Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib, /usr/lib64, /usr/include, and /usr/bin, if we can write to /usr/lib and /usr/bin. If we cannot create the symbolic links, the install fails.
BinPath Back The TTU bin path will be added to the end of the PATH environment variable. This is the default if no option is specified.
BinPath Front The TTU bin path will be added to the front of the PATH environment variable.
