Setting up your BAR environment is a prerequisite for backing up your database. The systems configured and enabled in the BAR Setup portlet are available in the BAR Operations portlet. BAR setup configurations include systems and nodes, media servers, backup solutions, target groups, and alerts. These setup configurations are stored in the DSC repository, which manages BAR operations.

Beginning with DSA 16.10, nodes are configured through autodiscovery. You can view the node information but changing the node configuration is not allowed.

After configuring your BAR environment, you can use the BAR Operations portlet to create jobs, manage job settings, monitor job progress and view job history details.
