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?

Did all that. But still can't create a database. I need to create a database and them tables to load some data. So I can play with that? Could you please show us?

@Nik Once you logon with dbc, you can create your own account using the following SQL: CREATE USER user_name FROM database_name AS PASSWORD = user_password PERM = 10000000 SPOOL = 1000000 PERM: permanent space SPOOL: spool space BTW, in Teradata user is same as database except a user has a password associated. Please refer to manual for more details: http://www.info.teradata.com/do_redirect.cfm?itemid=102320036

Thanks for sharing this. It was certainly helpful. I have a quick question though: In Teradata JDBC connection properties you have used User Name/Domain: dbc Password: dbc How can I create my own username and password.

@mark I am glad that this post helped you. I was planning to write some more materials for Teradata but I have not got time yet. I will update you once they are ready. The official website potentially provides some useful tutorials. http://developer.teradata.com/ P.S. I am also starting to learn Teradata. We can share tips with each other.

@sajid khan As you can see from the screenshot, the viewpoint is built in the image. You can start the view point by clicking the desktop icon. The following command can be used to verify the status in Linux/Unix: /etc/init.d/viewpoint status Viewpoint uses default 80 port number which means you can directly type your VM's IP address in your browser. You can search Teradata official documentation to find out more information: Viewpoint Configuration Guide

Hi All, how can we test and access Viewpoint after installing VMware? I am able to login using dbc credentials now. Can someone please guide on accessing/installing viewpoint ? Thanks.!!!

@vinoth you need to login with the dbc user which is the most powerful user in the database server. As mentioned, the default password in the virtual machine image is dbc too. With dbc, you can grant rights to other users.

@sasanka ghosh I am glad this article can help you. I was hoping TeraData can generate Hyper-V images as well so that we can directly use this built-in feature in Windows.

Thanks for the update! I noticed that teradata sudio express also included in teradata express, one of function for teradata studio express is loading data, I was wondered that where can I find specification for data loading? The reason I ask this question is that my old job, data loading need be done in graveyard, data amount was too big, it will take several hours, now, in teradata studio case, how to figure out what kind data I can or cannot load, so that I will not be waiting too long, because if table too big, screen will be freeze. the point is to find out limitation of teradata studio express, thanks

Very good instructions, I followed step by step, all the screen shots listed in your page I can reproduce it(ignorable difference). Now, do you have any online materials that I can practice? Say practice sql in teradata step by step? How many local database with teradata express? Thanks for your help!
