PrerequisiteYou must have already installed the new version of Teradata GSS Administrative Package and have a copy of the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file from the previous release.
You must use an administrative package to configure TeraGSS for a client, although Teradata recommends not configuring it. See "Teradata GSS Administrative Package" in Teradata Vantage™ - Advanced SQL Engine Security Administration, B035-1100.
Use these steps to reuse the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file that you saved from the previous installation. For information on accessing and making changes to the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml file, see Teradata Vantage™ - Advanced SQL Engine Security Administration, B035-1100.

For the file paths listed in the steps below, prefix refers to the user-selected install drive plus Library/Application Support (the default prefix is /Library/Application Support).

  1. At the command prompt, type run_tdgssconfig to create the directory for the configuration file.

    /prefix/teradata/client/version/bin

  2. Copy TdgssUserConfigFile.xml to this directory:
    /prefix/teradata/client/etc/site
  3. Execute run_tdgssconfig again to initialize the custom configuration.
