  1. Create a service principal.
  2. From the Azure portal, note the private IP and either the public IP or private DNS of the Teradata Database VM.
  3. Log on to the VM using the authentication type you chose when deploying the VM.
  4. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  5. Run the following command without arguments.
    # tdc-feature-init
  6. Enter the following information at the prompts:
    • client ID (application ID)
    • secret key (authentication key)
    • tenant ID (Active Directory ID)
    • subscription ID
    If successful, the output displays Credentials validation succeeded.

    Service principal details are written to /etc/opt/teradata/tdconfig/service_principal_config.json.
