Before deploying Teradata Database on VMware, you must obtain your Teradata licensing information and verify you have a sufficient quantity of physical cores available to deploy.
- Refer to the email you received and record the EID and license period to use when you update the common.IT.properties.json properties file. An entitlement identifier (EID) is a string corresponding with your Teradata license, which is valid for a specific period of time. You will use this licensing information in one of the properties files that you configure before deployment. See The common.IT.properties.json File.
