Configuring Teradata Data Mover

After deploying a Data Mover VM, you must check the Teradata Database status, verify Data Mover components are ready to use, and then Data Mover is ready to use.

The time zone for the Teradata Data Mover VM defaults to the database time zone.

The steps in this procedure apply to all deployment methods except where noted.

  1. From the Azure portal, note the following of the Data Mover VM:
    • The private IP address.
    • If applicable, either the public IP or public DNS.
  2. From the SSH client console, connect to the VM by logging on to the master or other Data Mover VM using the same authentication type you chose when you deployed the VM using the Teradata ecosystem solution template or the single VM from an image.
    Authentication type Action
    SSH public key Enter the following:
    # ssh -i ssh-private-key.pem azureuser@VM-public-IP-address or VM-public-DNS-address
    where:
    • The ssh-private-key is the private key file (.pem) specified when you deployed the VM.
    • The azureuser is the user name specified when you deployed the VM.
    • The VM-public-IP-address or VM-public-DNS-address is the DNS host name or public IP address of the Data Mover VM.
    Password Enter the following:
    # ssh azureuser@VM-public-IP-address or VM-public-DNS-address
    Password: password
    where:
    • The azureuser is the user name specified when you deployed the VM.
    • The VM-public-IP-address or VM-public-DNS-address is the DNS host name or public IP address of the Data Mover VM.
    • The password is the password specified when you deployed the VM.
  3. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -
  4. Check the status of the database.
    # pdestate -a
    PDE state is RUN/STARTED.
    DBS state is 4: Logons are enabled - Users are logged on
    The Data Mover components automatically start up after the Teradata Database repository has started.
  5. If Teradata is used as a source and target system for data movement, add the COP entries with private IP addresses to one of the following:
    • /etc/hosts file on all Data Mover VMs including each additional Data Mover agent VM
    • DNS
    The TDPIDs can be used in the Data Mover job XML for data movement.
  6. Run the following commands to verify Data Mover components are ready to use.
    # datamove list_jobs
    # datamove list_agents
  7. Do one of the following to move data:
    • Deploy a Viewpoint VM to use the Data Mover portlets by logging on to the Viewpoint portal with the user name of admin and enter the same password as the Viewpoint VM ID.

      The Data Mover portlets are pre-installed on the Viewpoint VM.

    • Use the Data Mover command-line interface.
    • Use the Teradata REST Services interface.
For information about how to use these interfaces, see the Teradata Data Mover User Guide.
