Run the sample CLI application, clisamp, to verify the Teradata Tools and Utilities software installed properly.
  1. Modify the following makefile to include the correct directory paths to the include files:
    • Solaris on Opteron
      • makesamp.soli386 [32-bit]
      • makesamp.solx8664 [64-bit]
    • Solaris on SPARC
      • makesamp.sol [32-bit]
      • makesamp.sol64 [64-bit]
  2. Execute the makefile:
    make -f filename

    where filename is the name of the file in the previous step.

    The executable module named clisamp is created.
  3. Change the mode of the executable to run:
    • Solaris on Opteron
      • chmod +x clisamp_soli386 [32-bit]
      • chmod +x clisamp_solx8664 [64-bit]
    • Solaris on SPARC
      • chmod +x clisamp_sol [32-bit]
      • chmod +x clisamp_sol64 [64-bit]
  4. Run the sample program using one of the following commands:
    • Run the sample program using the default logon information (dbc/systemfe,service):
      • Solaris on Opteron
        • [32-bit] clisamp_soli386
        • [64-bit] clisamp_solx8664
      • Solaris on SPARC
        • [32-bit] clisamp_sol
        • [64-bit] clisamp_sol64
    • Show help for the sample program:
      • Solaris on Opteron
        • [32-bit] clisamp_soli386 -h
        • [64-bit] clisamp_solx8664 -h
      • Solaris on SPARC
        • [32-bit] clisamp_sol -h
        • [64-bit] clisamp_sol64 -h
    • Run the sample program using a user-provided input string:
      • Solaris on Opteron
        • [32-bit] clisamp_soli386 tdpid/user,password
        • [64-bit] clisamp_solx8664 tdpid/user,password
      • Solaris on SPARC
        • [32-bit] clisamp_sol tdpid/user,password
        • [64-bit] clisamp_sol64 tdpid/user,password
    The program logs on to the default dbccop1 (no user input supplied) specified in the /etc/hosts file, runs a simple query SELECT * from dbc.sessioninfo, and writes the output to the clisamp.dat file. A display similar to the following appears:
    CLIv2 version is
    MTDP version is
    MOSIOS version is
    MOSIDEP version is
    OSERR version is
    Logging on to --> dbc/systemfe,service
    writing out to --> CLISAMP.DAT
    submitting --> select* from dbc.sessioninfo;
    writing out to --> CLISAMP.DAT
    Logging off.
