You can use Query Service in the public cloud or on-premises.

The time zone for the Query Service VM defaults to the database time zone.

  1. From the Azure portal, note the following information of the Query Service VM:
    • The private IP address.
    • Either the public IP or public DNS, if applicable.
  2. Log on to the VM using the authentication type you chose when deploying the VM.
  3. Obtain an admin password for Query Service.
    1. Open an SSH client and connect to the Query Service VM:
      # ssh azureuser@VM-public-IP-address
      where:
      • azureuser is the user name specified when you deployed the VM.
      • VM-public-IP-address is the public IP address of the Query Service VM.
    2. Switch to the root user environment.
      # sudo su -
    3. Generate the password for the admin user:
      /opt/teradata/rest/bin/azure_tdrest-password-generate

      Note the resulting password, which you will use to log in to the Query Service user interface.

  4. From your browser, display the Query Service user interface using either the IP address or DNS name.
    • http://VM-public-IP-address:1080
    • http://VM-public-DNS:1080
    where VM-public-IP-address is the public IP address and VM-public-DNS is the DNS host name of the Query Service VM.
  5. Log in to the Query Service user interface as admin.
  6. Create a system. See the Teradata® Query Service Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide for Customers.
