In this article, I am going to introduce how to install Teradata Express in virtual machines in Windows.

Download software

1) Download VMware Player for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit from the following link (version 6.0):

https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_player/6_0

This is a free software for personal use.

2) Download TDE 15.00.00.08 SLES 10 for VMware (40GB) viewpoint: http://downloads.teradata.com/download/database/teradata-express/vmware.

This is the latest version of Teradata Express edition.

Install software

1) Install VM Player 6.0. Please turn off Windows feature Hyper-V off in your PC (restart required); otherwise you cannot open VM in the VM Player.

2) Extract the file TDExpress15.0.0.8_Sles10_40GB_vp.7z to a folder.

3) Open VMware Player

4) Choose ‘Open a Virtual Machine’ and select the file ‘TDExpress15.0.0.8_Sles10.vmx’

And now the setup work is done. As you can see, the OS is SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 64-bit and version is Workstation 6.5-7.x virtual machine.

Run the Virtual Machine

Just click ‘Play virtual machine’ and you are entering the world of Teradata.

You can also download and update VMware Tools for Linux for latest version (version 9.6.2) as recommended.

After some setups, you will be able to see the login window:

Login: root, Password: root.

After login, you can see the desktop:

Teradata Studio Express is also included in this virtual machine.

Run ‘Viewpoint Start’ / 'Viewpoint Stop’ to start/stop all the Teradata services.

Using Teradata Express Studio

In the studio, connect to the local Teradata database:

Driver: Teradata embedded JDBC

Database Server Name: localhost

User Name/Domain: dbc

Password: dbc

Authentication Mechanism: PASSWORD_PROTECTED

After connection is established, run the query below:

 select * from DBC.Accounts;

The result will be similar to the following screenshot:

In which step you could not type password? In this tutorial, there are two places:

  • Logon to suse  (use Ctrl +Alt to release mouse cursor, for more details about VMware shortcuts, refer to this page)
  • Connect to Teradata database in Teradata Studio Express.

If you followed all the steps, in the UNIX virtual machine, Teradata Studio Express is already included. You can use that tool to connect to the Teradata server using dbc account and then create any database you like.

Alternatively, please follow the link below to setup client tools in your Windows (host machine for the Teradata VM), which will enable you to connect directly:

You can use Teradata Administrator client tool if you are not familiar with SQL.

@Matt I simply don't have the Create Data base in the Tools. I am very new to Teradata.

@Matt what is the error message you got when creating database?

Did you follow all the steps including logging with dbc user?
