  1. Create a package and configure it for deployment.
    1. Select Start > All Programs > Microsoft System Center 2012 > Configuration Manager.
      Allow a few seconds for the software to connect to SQL Server.
    2. Select Software Library.
    3. Expand Overview > Application Management > Packages.
    4. Right-click Packages and select Create Package.
      The Create Package and Program Wizard appears.
    5. Add information to the following text boxes:
      Text Box Value
      Name The name of the package you are creating (for example, TTU Base 17.00)
      Manufacturer Teradata Corporation
      Language EN
      Version 17.00
    6. Select This package contains source files.
      The Set Source Folder dialog appears.
    7. For the Source folder text box, browse to the folder containing the source files (the software repository).
    8. In the Create Package and Program Wizard, click Next.
    9. Click Standard program then click Next.
    10. Enter the Name of the program, for example, TTU Base 16.20.
    11. In the Command line text box, enter the following command:
      • batch_filename "PRODUCT"
      • batch_filename is the name of the batch file on the root of the software repository
      • PRODUCT is a set of parameter values associated with the products you want to install. The parameter values, including a set of strings you can copy, are found at: Product Parameter Values for Silent Installs
      Important: If the batch file you specify contains a command to execute silent_install.bat, do not add PRODUCT parameter values to the Command line text box. An example of a batch file that contains a command to execute silent_install.bat is the file named Deploy_TTU.bat mentioned in Creating a Batch File to Install the Products. This file already contains a list of PRODUCT parameter values.
      Command Example: Install all products that are part of the Base suite:
      • silent_install.bat "BTEQ,FastExport,FastLoad,JMSAM,MultiLoad,KAFKAAM,AZUREAM,S3AM,NamedPipesAM,

      You do not need to specify the values for the dependent products because they will automatically be installed. However, be sure to copy the following dependent product package files to the root of the software repository:
      • Shared ICU Libraries for Teradata
