    DSC Repository Warning Thresholds Maximum amount of data to store in your DSC repository. A repository size below 85% of the threshold is normal for BAR operations. After 85% of the size threshold is met, warning messages are generated. After 95% of the size threshold is met, all BAR jobs that create more data on the repository receive an error message and do not run. At that point, the repository database perm space needs to be increased or jobs have to be deleted in order to continue using DSA.
    After increasing perm space, restart the DSC service so that the change takes effect immediately.
    Security Management Require Teradata Viewpoint authentication on the DSA command-line interface. If checked, a user submitting certain commands from the command-line interface must enter a valid Teradata Viewpoint user name and password.
