The configuration file contains parameters that determine the default behavior for Teradata Parallel Transporter Base, such as default checkpoint and log directories. These must be selected.
  • Edit the configuration file and specify the Teradata Parallel Transporter default directory and default log directory.
    CheckpointDirectory='<prefix>/teradata/client/short version/tbuild/checkpoint', where:
    • CheckpointDirectory is the directory that contains the checkpoint files for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs
    • prefix can be provided during install; if not, then the default is /opt
    • short version is the product version in short form (for example, 17.00)
    LogDirectory='<prefix>/teradata/client/short version/tbuild/logs', where:
    • LogDirectory contains the binary logs for Teradata Parallel Transporter jobs
    • prefix can be provided during install; if not, then the default is /opt
    • short version is the product version in short form (for example, 17.00)

    Each Teradata Parallel Transporter job creates a job log in the jobs directory. See the Teradata® Parallel Transporter Reference, B035-2436 for information on how to read the job log.
