For third-party backup and restore solutions compatible with Teradata Database, the system checks access privileges separately for each object accessed by a BAR operation. This allows for the possibility that some BAR tasks assumed to be complete are actually incomplete due to the BAR user lacking the necessary access privileges. Make sure that BAR users have the necessary privileges on all objects in BAR jobs they run.

For BAR jobs using Teradata Data Stream Architecture (DSA) the system checks all access privileges for a job and prevents the job from running if the user does not have the necessary access privileges on all objects in the job.
