For more information on mainframe configuration, see Teradata Director Program Reference and Teradata Tools and Utilities for IBM z/OS Installation Guide.
- In the node.IT.properties.json file, enter the TDP logical host ID in the LHID field.
Add the vNodes to the appropriate MVS etc.hosts file in the following format:
HOST : ipaddr : vmnameNTCI n:: ::
There is no space between the VM name and the NP name. There is a space between the second and third trailing colon.The following is an example of a three vNode system:
ipaddr IP address of the VM vm Name of the VM NTCI n:: :: Representation of an Teradata network processor (NP) name
HOST : 18.104.22.168 : VMNAMEntci1:: :: HOST : 22.214.171.124 : VMNAMEntci2:: :: HOST : 126.96.36.199 : VMNAMEntci3:: ::
Edit the TDP Parm file to add the NP information.
The following is the syntax of a three vNode system:
CONFIG NP DATABASE vmname CONFIG NP LHID logical host id START NP1 START NP2 START NP3
Ping the VM from the mainframe to confirm the deployment using the following syntax:
For a single-node system:
tso ping vmnameFor an MPP system, ping the individual nodes:
tso ping vmname1
