    Should .tdc files be on workers or just the primary?

    Toby Erkson

      Background:

      I use .tdc files for MS SQL Server & IBM DB2 data sources and originally used them when we had a single-node Tableau Server environment.  We are now in a 2-node environment with our worker taking care of all Backgrounder tasks.

       

      Question:

      In a multi-node environment should there be .tdc files on the workers as well?  This is assuming the workers are being used in data source connections, of course.

       

      My gut tells me they should be on the worker node but I don't see them on mine, meaning they were not exported from the primary to the worker as expected
