After deploying a Teradata Viewpoint instance, you must connect to the instance from your browser, and log on to the Teradata Viewpoint portal to add the Vantage instance as a monitored system using the Viewpoint Monitored Systems portlet before using the software.
You can use Teradata Viewpoint to connect to a Teradata system on AWS or an on-premises Teradata system.
Teradata Viewpoint on AWS offers a limited number of Vantage console utilities in the Remote Console portlet. These utilities are Abort Host, Check Table, Gateway Global, Lock Display, Query Configuration, Query Session, Show Locks, and Update Space.
The time zone for the Viewpoint instance defaults to the time zone of the AWS availability zone.
If you are using Teradata Viewpoint to connect to a Teradata system on AWS, start a Vantage instance using the AWS Console.
If you are using Teradata Viewpoint to connect to an on-premises Teradata system, Vantage does not need to be running.
- From the AWS Management Console, note the Public DNS or host name of the Viewpoint instance, and the Private DNS or Public DNS of the Vantage instance.
From your browser, display the Viewpoint portal login screen.
http://public-DNSwhere: public-DNS is the DNS host name of the Viewpoint instance.
Log on to the Viewpoint portal.
The username is admin and the password is the Viewpoint instance ID.
Do the following from the Monitored Systems portlet:
See Teradata® Viewpoint User Guide, B035-2206.
- Add, configure, and enable the system.
