Repositories

  • Last updated on

Barracuda NG Control Center repositories contain configurations that can be applied to groups of Barracuda NG Firewalls. Configuration data that is used on more than one machine should be stored in a repository. This saves time and reduces configuration errors, because the information is entered only once and is then linked from the corresponding repository object. When you change a setting in a repository object, all linked configuration entries are automatically updated. With a repository, you do not have to configure each affected system individually. Three types of repositories exist: 

  • General Repository
  • Range Repository
  • Cluster Repository

Due to compatibility reasons, two nodes are structured differently within the box repository tree than within box range tree configuration:

  • Authentication Service is placed in Advanced Configuration and not in Infrastructure Services.
  • System Settings is placed in Box and not in Advanced Configuration.
