Re: BARS and Backup utility

Hi Zhijia,

The utility was called Cisco IP Telphony Applications Backup Utility before CCM 3.3.x Since then it is BARS. Here is an excerpt from a document that references the change:

"Cisco strongly recommends that you use the supported Cisco Backup and Restore System (BARS) utility if you are running Cisco CallManager 3.3 or later.

If you are using an earlier version of Cisco CallManager, use the Cisco IP Telephony Applications Backup Utility (3.5).

BARS only restores files that were backed up with BARS"

Here is a link to the actual document:

Hope this helps!

Rob
