The requirements for tdatSystem objects in the directory varies, depending on the number and configuration of Teradata Vantage systems:
- If the directory serves a single Vantage system, create a single tdatSystem object, as shown in Example: tdatSystem.
- If the directory serves multiple Vantage systems:
- If the systems maintain the same set of users, profiles, roles and IP filters, and maps them to directory users in the same manner, you only need a single tdatSystem object for all systems.
- If the users, profiles, roles, and IP filters diverge among multiple database systems, then you should create a separate tdatSystem object for each Vantage system.
