Subj:   Re: Default database space
From:   Alison Torres


Do most Teradata sites set a user's database to have no space, so that all tables are setup in the default database.

- probably yes, this is to save space, maintain security, and is explained in the Teradata RDBMS Customer Education course on System Administration.

- I have a scenario where there are two users USER1 and USER2, running the same program against the same default database. If USER1's program creates a temporary table A, what happens when USER2's program tries to create a temporary table A. Will there be a conflict?

There will be a conflict because the table and view names in a database must be unique, regardless of the creator.
