Subj:   Problems with running BTEQ on a LINUX system
From:   Young, Mark


Does anyone know of someone within Teradata that might be able to help us with an issue that we get trying to logon using BTEQ on a Debian system. I know that Teradata do not provide software for Debian, but we have a major project that requires Debian and we are trying to get connectivity to Teradata.

We keep getting the following error:-

     *** CLI error: MTDP: EM_GSSINITFAIL(235): call to gss_init failed.
     *** Return code from CLI is: 235
     *** Error: Logon failed!

We are currently using the following versions of software and because BTEQ is only available in 32-bit have made an assumption that we have to use 32-bit versions for all the dependency packages. Is this a correct assumption to make even we are using 64-bit Debian?

This is how I am installing:

     export SRCDIR="/home/projects/teradata/"
     mkdir 090130
     cd 090130
     rpm2cpio ${SRCDIR}/tdicu/tdicu- . \
     | cpio -idv
     ${SRCDIR}/TeraGSS/TeraGSS_redhatlinux-i386- . \
     | cpio -idv
     rpm2cpio ${SRCDIR}/piom/piom- . \
     | cpio -idv
     rpm2cpio ${SRCDIR}/cliv2/cliv2- . \
     | cpio -idv
     rpm2cpio ${SRCDIR}/bteq/bteq- . \
     | cpio -idv
     sudo cp -R opt/teradata /opt
     sudo install usr/bin/bteq /usr/bin/
     sudo install usr/lib/* /usr/lib32
     sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/errmsg.cat /usr/lib/errmsg.cat
     sudo ln -s /usr/lib32/clispb.dat /usr/lib/clispb.dat
     $ bteq

I have obtained 64-bit versions of tdicu, TeraGSS and cliv2 but not sure if I can use these or even if they will work.

If I can talk with the LINUX expert in Teradata they maybe able to assist with pointing us in the right direction.
