Issue/Introduction

Hi, 

We are using Teradata ODBC driver 16.10. I am getting the below error while registering the table.

Cause

This error occurs when the Teradata QVCI (Queryable View Column Information) feature is disabled on the Teradata database.
The QVCI feature is a Teradata option that controls the access to specific system tables.

Environment

Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager

Resolution

To resolve this, you would need to:
  • Enable this feature on the Teradata database,
  • or upgrade the ODBC driver to the latest 16.20 driver (16.20.06 or later), which contains a fix for this error.
I urge you to verify this with your Teradata DBA, before taking any actions, since Broadcom Test Data Manager Support is not certified in Teradata Database Administration. However, this is not a TDM Product related issue, and needs to be addressed on the Teradata side.
