  8. Once the VM instance is running, SSH into the instance with the following:
    linux login: root
    Password: iumb123
    The IP address is displayed on the Summary screen of the vSphere client.
    The root logon through the vSphere client is disabled by default.
  9. [Optional] Run -echo "tty1" >> /etc/securetty to enable the root logon through the console.
  10. After login, configure the network:
    1. Gather the following required information to run the network configuration script:
      • VM name (desired 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.
      • Primary NTP server
      • (Optional) Secondary NTP server
    2. Run the network configuration script:
      # /var/opt/teradata/packages/DataMover/config-network-dm
      After entering the required information, the script configures and restarts the VM instance. Allow several minutes for the configuration to complete after the system is restarted. You can run the script again if necessary if information was entered incorrectly the first time or the configuration changes in the future.
