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:
  • ShareLibs=yes|no
  • updateETC=yes|no

If the ttu_install.cfg file is not found in /var/opt/teradata, or in any location stored within TTU_INSTALL_CFG, then the values for SharedLibs default to no and the value for updateETC defaults to yes.

OptionName Value Meaning
ShareLibs no Symbolic links are not created in /usr/lib.
ShareLibs yes Symbolic links are created in /usr/lib, if we can write to that location. 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.
