Configuring Teradata REST Services

After deploying a Teradata REST Services VM, you must connect to the VM and log on to the Teradata REST Services graphical user interface.

You can use Teradata REST Services in the public cloud or on-premises.

The time zone for the Teradata REST Services VM defaults to the database time zone.

  1. From the Azure portal, note the following of the REST Services VM:
    • The Private IP address.
    • If applicable, either the Public IP or Public DNS.
  2. From the SSH client console, log on to the Teradata REST Services VM using the same authentication type you chose when you deployed the 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 Teradata REST Services 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 Teradata REST Services VM.
    • The password is the password specified when you deployed the VM.
  3. Obtain an admin password for Teradata REST Services.
    1. Open an SSH client and connect to the Teradata REST Services 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 Teradata REST Services VM.
    2. Switch to the root user environment.
      # sudo su -
    3. Run the following command to generate the password for the admin user:
      /opt/teradata/rest/daemon/bin/tdrest-password-generate

      Note the resulting password, which you will use to log on to the Teradata REST Services graphical user interface.

  4. From your browser, display the Teradata REST Services graphical user interface using either the DNS name or the IP address.

    http://VM-public-DNS:1080

    http://VM-public-IP-address:1080

    where VM-public-DNS is the DNS host name and VM-public-IP-address is the public IP address of the Teradata REST Services VM.
  5. Log on to the Teradata REST Services graphical user interface as admin.
  6. Create a system.
