The following restrictions apply to the memory mapped file directory for Teradata Parallel Transporter:
  • The memory mapped file directory cannot be a relative directory path.
  • The whitespace character cannot be in the name of the memory mapped file directory.
During a reinstallation of the same Teradata Parallel Transporter Base version, the Teradata Parallel Transporter Base reinstallation does not request for the IPC memory choice. The reinstallation reuses the existing IPC memory choice.
The first Teradata Parallel Transporter package prompts for the installation directory. Subsequent Teradata Parallel Transporter packages of the same version do not request the installation directory, but uses the same installation directory as the first Teradata Tools and Utilities package installed.
