Managing BAM Databases

Administrators use the BAM Management utility (bm.exe) to set up, manage, and update the BAM databases. This section shows you how to use the BAM Management utility to perform these common administrator tasks for the BAM databases, which are described in the following table.

For information about backing up and restoring the BAM databases, see Backing Up and Restoring BAM.
