Before you install Teradata Tools and Utilities software, always compare the versions available from the following resources:
- Teradata Software Server
- Teradata Community
In general, software on the Teradata Software Server (TSS) will contain the most recent point release of a software product, followed by the Teradata Community.
The 16.10 release is not compatible with any pre-15.10.10 release. The main installer will provide the option to remove any pre-15.10.10 release before installing 16.10. If not removed, the pre-15.10.10 release will not work properly, and the 16.10 release also may have issues.
