  • Master server - Teradata ActiveMQ, Teradata Database, and PUT are installed and running on a SUSE LINUX server before installing any of the DSA component packages.
  • Media server - PUT is installed and running on a SUSE LINUX server before installing any of the DSA component packages.
  • For new installations, the DSC User must be created prior to installing DSC and ClientHandler. This does not apply to upgrades.

A Teradata Version Migration and Fallback (VM&F) upgrade is not required nor suggested for DSA package installation. However, if major OS changes are being applied when the DSA packages are being installed, you should use a VM&F upgrade.
