Observe the following limitations when using the ODBC operator on the HP-UX platform:

  • The user *must* set the LD_PRELOAD environment variable to the path and name of the pthread library. For example:


  • ODBC operator cannot run simultaneously with the Teradata Access Module for Named Pipes due to a conflict in the setting of an environment variable associated with the ODBC Driver Manager.
  • On HP-UX Itanium platforms, Teradata PT requires HPUX B.11.31 or later for the ODBC operator library to be loaded.
  • On HP-UX Itanium platforms, before running any Teradata PT job that uses the ODBC operator, you must set the HPUX environment variable LD_PRELOAD as follows:


    After the Teradata PT job completes, unset the variable as follows:

    Unset LD_PRELOAD

    After the Teradata PT job completes, you can ignore the following message in case you see it:
