How can I safely upgrade Firmware or make changes to my Barracuda Virtual Appliance deployment?

Solution #00004521


This solution applies to all Barracuda Virtual Appliances.


Virtual machine environments generally provide a 'snapshot' capability, which captures the state of a system as it is running. Once a snapshot is created, the system can be modified safely since it can always be recovered to the last known stable state by reverting to the snapshot.


We highly recommend performing a snapshot at certain points in time:

  1. Before upgrading Firmware.
  2. Before making major configuration changes to your configuration
  3. After completing and confirming a large set of changes such as initial configuration.
  4. As a periodic backup mechanism.

Please review your virtual environment's documentation regarding 'snapshot' capabilities.
