If you installed Teradata Parallel Transporter Base, you can modify the local configuration file (twbcfg.ini) to specify the paths to the following directories (folders):
  • checkpoint directory: Contains the checkpoint files for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs. Teradata Parallel Transporter uses checkpoint files to store temporary information needed to restart a job that does not complete successfully.
  • log directory: Contains the binary logs for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs. Each Teradata Parallel Transporter job writes a log in the log directory.
  1. Clear the read-only attribute for the configuration file.By default, an installation of Teradata Parallel Transporter sets this file to read-only.
    The configuration file is located in the following folder:
    • TPT_install_directory\Teradata\Client\version\Teradata Parallel Transporter\

    where version is the short version (for example, 15.00).

  2. Specify the path to the checkpoint directory in the configuration file.
    • 32-bit
      CheckpointDirectory= 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\version\Teradata Parallel Transporter\checkpoint'
      
    • 64-bit
      CheckpointDirectory= 'C:\Program Files\Teradata\Client\version\Teradata Parallel Transporter\checkpoint'
      
  3. Specify the path to the log directory in the configuration file.
    • 32-bit
      LogDirectory='C:\Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\version\Teradata Parallel Transporter\logs'
    • 64-bit
      LogDirectory='C:\Program Files\Teradata\Client\version\Teradata Parallel Transporter\logs'
    You do not need to reboot after you edit the configuration file.
