Configuring ODBC Connectivity

Configuring ODBC Connectivity

You can configure ODBC connectivity to a Teradata database.
The following steps provide a guideline for configuring ODBC connectivity. For specific instructions, see the database documentation.
  1. Create an ODBC data source for each Teradata database that you want to access.
    To create the ODBC data source, use the driver provided by Teradata.
    Create a System DSN if you start the Informatica service with a
    Local System account
    logon. Create a User DSN if you select the
    This account
    log in option to start the Informatica service.
  2. Enter the name for the new ODBC data source and the name of the Teradata server or its IP address.
    To configure a connection to a single Teradata database, enter the DefaultDatabase name. To create a single connection to the default database, enter the user name and password. To connect to multiple databases, using the same ODBC data source, leave the DefaultDatabase field and the user name and password fields empty.
  3. Configure Date Options in the Options dialog box.
    In the Teradata Options dialog box, specify AAA for DateTime Format.
  4. Configure Session Mode in the Options dialog box.
    When you create a target data source, choose ANSI session mode. If you choose ANSI session mode, Teradata does not roll back the transaction when it encounters a row error. If you choose Teradata session mode, Teradata rolls back the transaction when it encounters a row error. In Teradata mode, the Integration Service cannot detect the rollback and does not report this in the session log.
  5. Verify that you can connect to the Teradata database.
    To test the connection, use a Teradata client program, such as WinDDI, BTEQ, Teradata Administrator, or Teradata SQL Assistant.
