In some Teradata systems, FICON nodes are used as PE-only nodes with no network connectivity. To run QueryGrid using this configuration, the following is recommended.
In this scenario, Hop 1 uses a bynet network interface as the initiating and target network; Hop 2 uses the customer LAN network.
- Add a new QueryGrid Manager server in the Teradata network (such as bynet) that is accessible by all TPA and HSN nodes.
- Cluster the new server with the target QueryGrid Manager using a customer LAN network.
To route PE requests from the Teradata FICON node to a target system, do the following:
- Set up a QueryGrid link as a single bridge.
- Make sure the bridge includes all the TPA nodes that have connectivity to all target nodes.
