You can restart Teradata Database without causing a reboot using one of the following methods (also see Forced Teradata Crashdumps):
- In DBW, open the Supervisor window icon and enter the following command:
restart tpa dump=yes comment
where comment is text explaining why there is going to be a restart.
The system performs a Teradata crashdump and a cold or coldwait restart. (For details, see “RESTART” under “Vproc Manager (vprocmanager)” in Utilities.)
- You can access the Teradata Command Prompt window and enter the tpareset command:
tpareset -d comment
The tpareset command has basically the same effect as the restart command in DBW.
The -d option forces a Teradata crashdump.
The system performs a cold restart and a Teradata crashdump.
Whichever command you choose to execute, the system prompts you for a confirmation.
