  1. In the node.IT.properties.json file, enter the TDP logical host ID in the LHID field.
  2. 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.
    ipaddr IP address of the VM
    vm Name of the VM
    NTCI n:: :: Representation of an Teradata network processor (NP) name
    The following is an example of a three vNode system:
    HOST : 123.12.123.123 : VMNAMEntci1:: ::
    HOST : 123.12.123.124 : VMNAMEntci2:: ::
    HOST : 123.12.123.125 : VMNAMEntci3:: ::
  3. 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
    
  4. Ping the VM from the mainframe to confirm the deployment using the following syntax: For a single-node system:
    tso ping vmname
    For an MPP system, ping the individual nodes:
    tso ping vmname1
