Prerequisites for managing BART

  • Before adding a BART server to the PEM console, you must manually install and configure BART on the BART host. For more information about installing and configuring BART, please see the BART Installation Guide available at:

  • Before associating a database server with a BART server, you must install SSH on the database server and the BART server.

  • Before restoring a BART backup, you must install BART, PEM agent, and SSH on the target server. SSH must also be installed on the BART server that you plan to use for restore.

  • To take a backup of the standby database servers, you must ensure that the latest pg_basebackup utility is installed on the database server that you want to manage through BART.
