gpfdist is installed in $GPHOME/bin of your Greenplum Database master host installation. Run gpfdist from a machine other than the Greenplum Database master, such as on a machine devoted to ETL processing. If you want to install gpfdist on your ETL server, get it from the Greenplum Load Tools package and follow its installation instructions.
