Hardware Compression Driver Requirement

When restoring an archive made on a source system with hardware block-level compression, you must install the hardware compression driver package (teradata-expressdx) on all TPA nodes of the destination system. The installation requires a reboot of these nodes. Because it allows the destination system to read the compressed archive, this requirement applies even if the destination system is not set up for hardware compression.
The teradata-expressdx driver package is provided with systems that are equipped with compression hardware.
