Teradata Tools and Utilities (TTU) software permits communication between a Teradata Client workstation and Advanced SQL Engine, and includes many important utilities. Many of the Teradata Tools and Utilities products are installed on all Client platforms.

Each new major release of Advanced SQL Engine will operate properly with the previous major release of TTU. Upgrades can be phased in as needed after the migration. However, Teradata recommends that you use the release of TTU utilities that matches the target Advanced SQL Engine release. If you use a prior release of TTU, you may not have access to all of the security and other features available in the current Advanced SQL Engine release.

Certain software products are closely connected with Advanced SQL Engine functionality. If you are using any of the following TTU products, you must upgrade them to the new release level before migrating to the new Advanced SQL Engine release level:

  • DSA
  • Visual Explain
  • Teradata System Emulation Tool
