After deploying a QueryGrid Manager instance, you must configure the software and deploy QueryGrid connectors. You must contact Teradata to purchase the QueryGrid connectors.

The time zone for a QueryGrid Manager instance is UTC and cannot be changed.

  1. From the AWS Management Console, note the Private IP address of the QueryGrid Manager instance.
  2. From your SSH client console, log on to the QueryGrid Manager instance as ec2-user using the applicable AWS key pair.
    # ssh -i  private-key-file.pem  ec2-user@private-IP
  3. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  4. Reset the default viewpoint and support passwords:
    # /opt/teradata/tdqgm/bin/
  5. [Optional] Change the private IP address to public IP address.
    By default, a QueryGrid Manager instance uses a private IP address, used by QueryGrid-attached nodes and other QueryGrid Manager instances to access it. To use the public IP and DNS instead:
    1. Open the properties file: /etc/opt/teradata/tdqgm/
    2. Update the following property value to true:
    3. Restart the QueryGrid Manager instance.
  6. If you launched multiple instances of QueryGrid Manager for high availability, you must provide the SSH key for authentication when clustering them.
