Rules for Retaining Eligibility for Restoring or Copying Selected Partitions
While you can change some of the characteristics of a table and retain the ability to restore or copy selected partitions to it, other operations against a partitioned table render it unable to be the target of selected partition restorations.
The following table definition changes do not invalidate future restorations of selected partitions for the targeted or referenced tables.
Also see “CREATE TABLE (Table Options Clause)” on page 519 for more information about these options.
When the target and source are different systems, you must repeat each of the previously listed operations on the affected tables of the target system to ensure that the two are kept in synchrony.
The following ALTER TABLE operations do make any future restore or copy operations of selected partitions for targeted or referenced tables non‑valid.
See Database Administration and Teradata Archive/Recovery Utility Reference for complete warnings, procedures, and other information related to partial restoration of partitions.
