Use the Connect command in the Teradata Query Scheduler Viewer to open the Teradata Query Scheduler Connect dialog box. Use the controls in that dialog box to connect to a Teradata QS server.
The following table describes the options and controls in this dialog box:
|Database Name||Use this text box to enter the name of the Teradata Database to use to schedule your SQL requests.|
|User Name||Enter your user name associated with the Teradata Database entered in the Database Name box.|
|Password||Enter the password associated with the user name entered in the User Name box.|
|Default Database||[Optional] Usually, your DBA sets up a default database associated with your user name and password. However, the name of another database can be entered as the default database in this text box.|
|Account String||[Optional] Usually, your DBA sets up a logon account string associated with your user name and password. However, a different account string can be entered instead of using the default.|
|Server||Enter the name or IP address of the system the Teradata QS server is running on. Initially, this box is disabled.
Teradata QS validates the Teradata Database logon parameters and attempts to obtain information about active Teradata QS servers from the TDWM database. If an active server is found, a connection is established, and the Teradata QS Viewer opens.
If a CLIv2 error occurs, an attempt is made to establish a connection using the Teradata QS server name configured with the Teradata QS Operations tool. If that is unsuccessful, the Server box becomes available.
Your DBA defines the default Teradata QS server using the Teradata Query Scheduler Operations tool. See Changing Default Server Information for details.
|Mechanism||Select the appropriate authentication mechanism (for example, TD2) in this list box. The default is blank, representing the standard Teradata (TD2) mechanism.|
|Parameter||Type the authentication string to be used with the mechanism specified. If the specified mechanism does not require this string, leave the box empty.|
|OK||Click to save the entries, close the Teradata Query Scheduler Connect dialog box, connect to the Teradata QS server, and open the Teradata Query Scheduler Viewer.|
|Cancel||Click to close the Teradata Query Scheduler Connect dialog box without saving the entries or connecting to the Teradata QS server.|
