Identify the data sources–servers, virtual machines (VMs), shares–that need to be protected and use the methods described in About Barracuda Backup and How Backup Works to determine the best backup strategy for your environment. To configure a data source in Barracuda Backup:
- Log in to Barracuda Backup and select the associated Barracuda Backup device in the left pane or in the devices table (for customers with multiple Barracuda Backup devices).
- Go to the Backup > Sources page, and click Add a Computer to identify the system.
- Complete the following information on the Add a Computer page:
- Computer description
- Computer name
- Computer type
- (Optional) Enable File Share Backup
Once a computer is added, click Save. The Add Data Source page displays. Configure any source-specific options, the backup schedule name, the offsite replication destination, then click Save.
Once the data source is configured, the Schedules page displays. For more information on scheduling backups, see Backup Scheduling.
