Database‑release might be used to aid in problem diagnosis.

Refers to the Teradata Database associated with the TDP whose TDP identifier is addressed by the QEPTIDP field and has length specified by the QEPTLEN field. Since they do not apply, the QEPRQST and QEPTOKEN fields must contain binary zeroes.

Returns the Teradata Database's release and version. The response consists of two fields totalling sixty-two bytes.

Note: The intent of the data is not to deduce Teradata Database functionality, but simply to provide the release and version information for whatever diagnostic use they may be. The values should not be parsed for any reason since their format is subject to change.
