You must have already installed the new version of Teradata GSS Administrative Package and have a copy of the previously used TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file.

If you need to configure TeraGSS for a client, you must do so using an administrative package, although Teradata recommends not configuring it. See "Teradata GSS Administrative Package" in Teradata® Database Security Administration (B035-1100).

Use these steps to reuse the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file that you saved from the previous installation. For information on accessing and making changes to the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file, refer to Teradata® Database Security Administration (B035-1100).

For the file paths listed in the steps below, prefix [or prefix (x86)] refers to the user selected directory (Program Files or Program Files (x86) are the default prefixes).

  1. Execute run_tdgssconfig to create the directory for the configuration file. It is located in the following directory:

    prefix\Teradata\Client\version\bin

  2. Copy TdgssUserConfigFile.xml to this directory: prefix\Teradata\Client\etc\site
  3. Execute run_tdgssconfig again to initialize the custom configuration. It is located in the following directory:

    prefix\Teradata\Client\version\bin
