An install configuration file (ttu_install.cfg) can be used to change the default behavior during install. Teradata recommends placing the file in the /var/opt/teradata directory.

Teradata Tools and Utilities supports the following options (case-insensitive) within the configuration file ttu_install.cfg:
  • InstallDir=prefix
  • ShareLibs=yes|no
  • updateETC=yes|no

The ttu_install.cfg file can also specified by the path in the environment variable TTU_INSTALL_CFG or in the user's home directory. If the ttu_install.cfg file is not found, then the values for SharedLibs and updateETC default to yes.

OptionName Value Meaning
InstallDir prefix Install root location; for example, InstallDir=/abc
ShareLibs no Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib, /usr/lib64, /usr/include, and /usr/bin.
ShareLibs yes Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib, /usr/lib64, /usr/include, and /usr/bin, if we can write to /usr/lib and /usr/bin. If we cannot create the symbolic links, the install fails.
updateETC no /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login are not updated.
updateETC yes /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login are updated.
