Tips for successful installations on Teradata Servers

Running Revolution R Enterprise on a Teradata device provides extremely good performance for large datasets.  The following information shouldbe reviewed prior to attempting to install to aid in a successful deployment.

------------------------

Has the Revolution R Enterprise (RRE) client been installed and odbc connectivity verified?

Has correct version of RRE client been installed? RRE Client and Server versions must match.

Does user have documentation?
http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/doc/7.3.0/linux/instman_ter...
http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/doc/7.3.0/linux/RevoScaleR_...

Does user have root access?

Is psh available (not required but makes the next step easier)?
which psh

Are PUT and PUTTools installed on all nodes?
psh rpm -qa TDput
psh rpm -qa PUTTools

Can user log on to PUT as root via web browser?
https://<HOSTIP>:8443/put

Does user have sufficient privileges to create a test user and database?
Have user review instman_teradata.pdf starting at page 8. 

Can user restart the Teradata DBS? A restart is required after installation and configuration of RRE.

Will restarting the DBS need to be scheduled?

What test user account will we be using? Suggest creating a temporary account such as RevoTester or ut1 as shown in the instman_teradata.pdf.

Has RevoTestDB been created, table(s) created and data loaded?
This could be done from the client side via BTEQ and fastload. The way it is done doesn't really matter.
Create a test DB:
create database RevoTestDB from sysdba as perm=20E9;
Data locations and fast load script: 
http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/datasets/ccFraud.csv
http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/datasets/ccFraudScore.csv
http://packages.revolutionanalytics.com/datasets/ccFraud_CreateLoad...

How much space is available on nodes? Need more than 500MB on all nodes
psh df -h

Check OS version:
less /etc/issue

Does user have the correct RRE tar.gz file for the Teradata DBS OS? Is it on one of the nodes?
Revo-Ent-M.m.r-TERA14S10.tar.gz
or
Revo-Ent-M.m.r-TERA14S11.tar.gz

Need a directory to for temporary job files on all Teradata nodes, has this been created?.
At a minimum, this needs to be rwx for user "tdatuser"
Suggest "/tmp/revoJobs"
