Subj:   Re: W2K Installation - cannot locate node global file
From:   Dennis Calkins


Sounds like you have a catch 22 here.

The Node global file is the First file created by Teradata Startup but you are saying startup is complaining it can't find it.

Can't find node global

should be treated the same as the PDE state


It means that

PDE is not currently running and PDE has never started on this box before or someone deleted this file since the last time it was up.

It is perfectly legal for this file not to exist (and normal after a fresh install )

This file is only valid while Teradata is running so it can be deleted while Teradata is down without affecting anything.

It will be re-created the next time you start up.

To start teradata manually From a command prompt type

net start recond

Actually when you installed Teradata it should have installed the service

Teradata RDBMS Initiator

Check SERVICES to see what this is set to. Manual or Automatic.

Automatic means every time the system is BOOTED Teradata will automatically be started.

Manual means you will have to run

net start recond

yourself to start it up when you want to start the instance.
