What is New in This Release
This release of BARS contains the enhancements described in the "Resolved Issues" section.
All-third party applications, including Cisco-provided and Cisco-approved applications that are coresident on the Cisco Unified CallManager server, must be stopped and disabled before you use the restore process.
Note Be sure to stop and disable all intrusion-detection applications, such as Cisco Security Agent and any virus-protection software, before using the restore process.
Tip Before you use BARS to perform a restore, reinstall any service releases; otherwise, BARS produces a version-mismatch error.
After using BARS to perform a restore, be sure to reinstall Cisco IP telephony applications, products, plugins, service releases, locales, and add-on devices to versions that are compatible with the restored version of Cisco Unified CallManager. If this is not done, you may lose data during the next upgrade of Cisco Unified CallManager as well as losing all locales and add-on devices.
Checking the Compatibility Matrix
Be sure to check the Cisco Unified CallManager Compatibility matrix at the following URL for information about which components have been tested with various BARS releases:
Note If you receive a warning while you are using BARS that indicates an incompatibility issue, double-check the matrix. If the matrix indicates that BARS has been tested with the component that the warning specifies, you can ignore the warning.

This section provides documentation changes that were unavailable when the Cisco IP Telephony Backup and Restore System (BARS) Version 4.0(12) documentation was released.
In the "Restoring a CRS Release 4.x Cluster" section, Step 4 should be replaced with the following information:
The "Restore Wizard: Step 2 of 4" window displays in one of the following two versions:
•If you chose a CiscoUpgrade.tar archive file that you copied from the CRS CD or a Patch(SR/ES).tar file that you downloaded from CCO from the previous window, the wizard prompts you to "Enter CRS data destination server to restore" in the Data Destination Server field. Enter the name of any active CRS server in the CRS cluster and click Next.
The server that you choose restores the data for the entire CRS cluster on which it resides. This data destination server does not need to be the same server that you chose as the data source server when this CRS cluster was backed up.
•If the archive that you chose on the previous window was a .tar file that was created by using BARS, you are now instructed to: "Select data destination server and application to restore."
From the drop-down lists on the "Restore Wizard: Step 2 of 4" window, first choose any active CRS server in the CRS cluster; then, choose the application (CRS) to restore. Click Next.
Note If you are restoring the data on a Cisco Customer Response Solutions (CRS) cluster, the CRS data destination server that you choose restores the data for the entire CRS cluster on which it resides. This data destination server does not need to be the same server that you chose as the data source server when this CRS cluster was backed up.
