System maintenance and the use of some Teradata utilities may require operating system-level (OS-level) access. Teradata Database runs as a system-generated, OS-level user.

For information on how to execute an OS-level logon to run a utility, see Utilities.

For information on the default Teradata Database OS-level users, see Controlling Access to the Operating System.
