The topics that follow present common errors that may occur when configuring SSL/TLS options, along with suggested corrective action.

The Linux user under which Teradata Database and Unity run (teradata) must own and have read access to certificate files. For sites that configured SSL/TLS before Release 14.0, the permission is granted automatically by a script upon upgrade to Release 14.0. For sites that configure SSL/TLS in Release 14.0 or later, you must grant the permission manually to the Linux user “teradata.” See Working with OS-Level Security Options.
