Unable to register Teradata DB tables - QVCI feature is disabled.


Article ID: 187012


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)



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


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.


Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager


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.
