To back up and restore the DBC database and all user databases, you must create a separate backup job for the DBC database, then a separate backup job for the other databases. After the backup jobs have successfully completed, you must create a separate restore job for each of the backup jobs.
The DBC database contains critical system tables that define the user databases in the Teradata Database. The system tables, views, and macros in the DBC database cannot be selectively backed up and must be backed up in their entirety. The BAR Operations portlet does not allow any of the DBC system objects to be selected for backup.
Full user access privileges are required for archiving or restoring DBC.
When restoring the DBC backup, the DBC password of the system being backed up is required.
