After an Error parcel (flavor 49), provides additional information about the error.

Usage Notes

This parcel may follow an Error parcel to further describe the error. If the Error-code is 3177, ErrorInformation indicates the minimum response buffer size. Normally this is handled internally by CLIv2 and will not be returned to the application. But if the server requires a response buffer larger than 65535 bytes but Maximum-parcel is not set to H, the Error and ErrorInformation parcels will be returned.

This parcel is generated by the Teradata server.
