Open a maintenance window to see the status of the Teradata software during the upgrade process, including data, reports, and summary alerts.
This process applies to all Teradata Software for Azure, except:
  • Data Mover
  • Data Stream Controller
  • Server Management
  • Unity
After initiation, the upgrade process is completely non-interactive. During the upgrade, PUT reboots the system. When performing a major upgrade, you must redeploy the system.
  1. Download the required upgrade bundles.
  2. Log in as the root user to the system where the software you want to upgrade is installed.
  3. If the following directory does not exist, create it: /var/opt/teradata/swupgrade-source
  4. Transfer the downloaded upgrade bundles to /var/opt/teradata/swupgrade-source.
  5. Change to the PUT bin directory: /opt/teradata/TDput/bin
  6. Run the swupgrade -U command:
    • If the TDput version is 03.09.01.07 or higher, set an environmental variable with your dbc password and run the swupgrade with the -d option:
      # export SWUPGRADEDBC='xxx'
      # /opt/teradata/TDput/bin/swupgrade -U -d
      where xxx is your dbc password. If the password contains any special characters, you must use single quotes around your dbc password.
    • If the TDput version is lower than 03.09.01.07, set your dbc password to dbc and run the command:
      # /opt/teradata/TDput/bin/swupgrade -U
    Progress messages display on the screen until the system reboots.
  7. Log on to the system and run this command to display the log as the upgrade completes: tail -f /var/opt/teradata/TDput/fileservice/logs/swupgrade.log PUT displays the following message when the upgrade completes:
    Operation completed with exit status 0
    ::
    ::
    Output for this script (swupgrade) can be found at /var/opt/teradata/TDput/fileservice/logs/swupgrade.log
  8. Press Ctrl+c to exit the tail command.
