When installing on a UNIX system, use the Korn shell (/bin/ksh) before running the installation procedure for Teradata Tools and Utilities. This ensures correct execution of the installation script.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is used to communicate with the Teradata Database.
- The same Ethernet LAN as the Teradata Database
- An Ethernet LAN that permits the client to communicate with the Teradata Database through one or more routers
- A node that is attached to the Teradata Database through Ynet or BYNET. No separate network controller board or network software is required; the client provides its own.
The appropriate Ethernet hardware and software supporting a TCP/IP-based network must be installed on every Teradata Database with which the client communicates.
