Although you can configure this software yourself, we recommend contacting Teradata instead. See
Teradata Viewpoint on AWS offers only the following Teradata Database console utilities in the Remote Console portlet: Abort Host, Check Table, Gateway Global, Lock Display, Query Configuration, Query Session, Show Locks, and Update Space.

The time zone for the Viewpoint instance defaults to the time zone of the AWS availability zone.

  1. If you are using Teradata Viewpoint to connect to a Teradata system on AWS, start a Teradata Database instance using the AWS Console. If you are using Teradata Viewpoint to connect to an on-premises Teradata system, the Teradata Database does not need to be running.
  2. From the AWS Web Console, note the Public DNS of the Viewpoint instance, and the Private DNS or Public DNS of the Teradata Database instance.
  3. From your browser, display the Viewpoint portal log on screen. http://viewpoint-public-DNS/c
  4. Log on to the Viewpoint portal. The user name is admin and the password is the Viewpoint instance ID.
  5. Do the following from the Monitored Systems portlet:
    • Add, configure, and enable the database system.
    • Add the TDPID of the database instance.

      This could be a private DNS or a public DNS, depending on your setup.

    • Configure the login credential to be used by system tasks.
    • [Optional] Select a time zone for the system you are configuring.
      Changing this setting overrides the time zone for the Viewpoint instance, which defaults to the time zone of the AWS availability zone.
    • Enable data collectors.
    • [Optional] Configure system health values.
