This section describes the Address Manager database, database backup, restoration, and maintenance.
BlueCat Address Manager comes with a built-in PostgreSQL database to store data such as DHCP and DNS objects, configuration information, notifications, server information, events, and alerts.
The Address Manager database functions transparently to store the data. Because the database is built inside Address Manager, you don't need to install or set up the database separately to get it functioning. However, you need to configure administrative features such as database backup, replication, restoration, or disaster recovery from the Address Manager Administration Console.
