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.

Teradata Tools and Utilities supports the following options (case-insensitive) within the configuration file ttu_install.cfg:
  • InstallDir=prefix
  • ShareLibs=yes|no

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 toyes.

OptionName Value Meaning
InstallDir prefix Install root location; for example, InstallDir=/abc
ShareLibs no Symbolic links are not created in /usr/lib and /usr/bin.
ShareLibs yes Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib and /usr/bin, if we can write to those locations. If we cannot create the softlinks, the install fails.
