INITVDISK

Purpose  

The INITVDISK command initializes the Teradata Database File System on the storage associated with a specific AMP, also known as the AMP’s vdisk. This applies only to AMPs with a VprocState of FATAL or NEWPROC. The state of the specified AMP remains unchanged.

Syntax

Description

vprocid

The number that identifies the vproc to be initialized. For a description of vprocIDs, see “Definitions of Terms Used in Vproc Manager” on page 944.

Usage Notes  

The initialization is accomplished by invoking File System Initialization Task in the Application partition on the specified AMP. InitVdisk will abort if the Application partition is in use already.

The initialization of the storage associated with a NEWPROC AMP is only relevant prior to database startup.

Database startup implicitly initializes the storage for NEWPROC AMPs (if necessary).
