Teradata Version Support for Change Data Multicast

Unity Change Data Multicast (CDM) uses new capabilities of the Teradata Database. CDM can only be enabled if all systems managed by Unity have CDM enabled. CDM is available in the following versions of the Teradata Database:
  • 16.20
  • 16.10
  • 15.10
CDM is not available on Teradata Database 16.00.

Network Configuration Requirements

All Unity servers must have DNS resolvable host names. Additionally, the /etc/hosts files on both Unity servers should be updated to include the following:
  • IP address for both Unity servers
  • COP entries for both Unity servers
  • COP entries for both repository databases
  • COP entries for all Managed Teradata systems

Use the /etc/hosts file to protect Unity from a potential DNS failure. It also ensures that traffic is not routed through an intelligent switch with an integrated network load balancer or network failover. The intelligent switches could cause the Unity server to connect to the incorrect server.
