PowerCenter Session Crashes With Unexpected Error While Running Session for Teradata Using "PowerExchange for Teradata Parallel Transporter" Connector
Problem Description
The session terminates unexpectedly with below error when configured to run using PowerExchange for Teradata Parallel Transporter (TPT) Connector:

FATAL 11/9/2019 6:11:43 AM NODE_1 *********** FATAL ERROR : An unexpected condition occurred in file [/export/home/build_root/EBFs/ebf-15500_1020hf2_lin-x64/powrmart/server/dmapper/trans/srcpipe.cpp] line [1383].  Aborting the DTM process.  Contact Informatica Global Customer Support. ***********
This issue is because Pre-SQL or Post-SQL command used with "PowerExchange for Teradata Parallel Transporter" (TPT) Connector.
PowerExchange for TPT connectivity does not support pre-SQL/post-SQL commands. So, to resolve this crash, do as below:

1. Remove the pre-SQL/post-SQL commands for TPT connector.
2. Re-run the session.


Refer the below steps if there is a requirement to use pre-SQL/post-SQL commands with "PowerExchange for Teradata Parallel Transporter" (TPT) Connector:
  • Create a dummy table in the PowerCenter Designer with a Teradata type connection. 
  • Add this to the mapping and output it to a flat-file. 
  • From the Designer, change the Target Load Plan (check the "mapping" menu), so that this new pipeline is either first or last in the list depending on if you want Pre or Post session SQL.
  • Add your Pre/Post session SQL to the dummy source from the Workflow Manager --> Session Properties --> Mapping tab (under the dummy source).​
