After deploying a Data Mover VM, you must check the Vantage status and verify Data Mover components are ready to use.

The time zone for the Teradata Data Mover VM defaults to the database time zone.

  1. From the Azure portal, note the following of the Data Mover VM:
    • The private IP address.
    • If applicable, either the public IP or public DNS.
  2. Log on to the VM using the authentication type you chose when deploying the VM.
  3. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  4. Check the status of the database.
    # pdestate -a
    PDE state is RUN/STARTED.
    DBS state is 4: Logons are enabled - Users are logged on
    The Data Mover components automatically start up after the Vantage repository has started.
  5. If Teradata is used as a source and target system for data movement, add the COP entries with private IP addresses to one of the following:
    • /etc/hosts file on all Data Mover VMs including each additional Data Mover agent VM
    • DNS
    The TDPIDs can be used in the Data Mover job XML for data movement.
  6. Run the following commands to verify Data Mover components are ready to use.
    # datamove list_jobs
    # datamove list_agents
    See the Teradata® Data Mover User Guide.
