  2. From your SSH client console, log on to the DSC instance as ec2-user using the applicable AWS key pair.
    # ssh -i  private-key-file  ec2-user@public-DNS  or  public-IP
    where:
    • private-key-file is the private key file (.pem) of the AWS key pair specified when launching the DSC instance.
    • public-DNS is the public DNS name or public-IP is the public IP address of the DSC instance.
  3. Switch to the root user environment.
    # sudo su -

    Note:
    Either of the following options change the DSC repository password to the AWS instance ID.

DSC is ready to use. The script sets the repository target group. The repository backup will be stored on the local machine at /var/opt/teradata/dsc/pathRepo. For information on how to configure systems, S3 storage backup applications, and target groups for S3 to run operational jobs, see Data Stream Utility Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Guide for Customers and Teradata Data Stream Architecture User Guide.

If you plan to use the BAR portlets in Teradata Viewpoint, see Configuring a Teradata Viewpoint Instance for DSC.
