An install configuration file can be provided to change the default behavior during install. The name of the file is ttu_install.cfg, and it should be placed in /var/opt/teradata.

We support the following options (case insensitive) within the configuration file ttu_install.cfg:
  • InstallDir=prefix
  • ShareLibs=yes|no
  • updateETC=yes|no

The ttu_install.cfg file can also specified by the path in the environment variable TTU_INSTALL_CFG or in the user's home directory. If the ttu_install.cfg file is not found, then the values for SharedLibs and updateETC will default to yes.

OptionName Value Meaning
InstallDir prefix Install root location; for example, InstallDir=/abc
ShareLibs no Symbolic links will not be created in /usr/lib and /usr/bin.
ShareLibs yes Symbolic links will be created in /usr/lib and /usr/bin, if we are able to write to those locations. If we are not able to create the softlinks, the install will fail.
updateETC no /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login will not be updated.
updateETC yes /etc/profile and /etc/csh.login will be updated.
