This solution applies to all Barracuda Backup Servers, firmware version 3.0 and higher.


In your Barracuda Backup Service Web Interface (backup.barracuda.com), navigate to BACKUP > Sources > Edit (for your server, between 'Add Data Source' and the red X)

Under "Backup Type" you will have the following options to select from:
  • Agent Software Backup (recommended)
  • Agent Software and File Share Backup
  • File Share Backup Only
When you select 'Agent Software Backup (recommended)' or 'Agent Software and File Share Backup' the agent will display on the sources screen once the Barracuda Backup Agent has been installed on the target server.

It is recommended that you ensure that your server is configured with it's IP Address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (i.e. server.domain.local).

Additional Notes:
For information on where to download and instructions on installing the agent please see Solution #00003983.
