- Verify Teradata version using pdepath -i.
- Verify if dependent packages ( TCHN, luminex, and bti-channel) are installed or not on the Teradata nodes.
rpm -qa|grep -Ei 'tchn|luminex|bti-channel'.If packages are not present, request you to raise a change request with GSO Change control team.

- Stop the database.
# tpareset –x –y stop for mainframe connectivity

# pdestate -aPDE state: DOWN/HARDSTOPPutting the database in this state may take several minutes.
- Do one of the following to run the command.
Option Action To add connectivity
- Run tdc-mainframe add with arguments.
- -c followed by the number of PEs to add
- -y used in conjunction with -c, bypasses user prompt and proceeds running the command automatically
- -h to display help information
To remove connectivity
- Run tdc-mainframe delete without arguments.
PEs and nodes are automatically removed when this command is run.
- Example of adding two mainframe PEs: tdc-mainframe add -c 2
- Example of adding one mainframe PE: tdc-mainframe add -c 1
- The database restarts multiple times when tdc-mainframe is running.
- At the prompt, check the database status to make sure logons are enabled.
# pdestate -aPDE state is RUN/STARTED.DBS state is 4: Logons are enabled - Users are logged on
