Updating F-Series Firewalls and Control Centers

  • Last updated on

Depending on whether you are updating a standalone or managed unit with or without high availability, you must complete different update processes.

Updating a Standalone Barracuda NextGen Firewall F or Control Center


You can update a standalone Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series or Barracuda NextGen Control Center with Barracuda NextGen Admin or via SSH on the command line.

Updating a Barracuda NextGen Firewall F or Control Center in a High Availability Setup


Additional considerations have to be made when updating a Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series or NextGen Control Center in a high availability cluster.

For more information, see How to Update High Availability Clusters.

Updating F-Series Firewalls Managed by a Control Center


A Barracuda NextGen Control Center can automatically execute updates of the Barracuda NextGen F-Series Firewalls that it manages. The update file is uploaded to the Control Center and then distributed by update group. You can choose which units are upgraded and set the time at which the upgrade is started.

Because all F-Series Firewalls in a cluster must have the same firmware version, you must upgrade all the firewalls in a cluster at the same time. Migrate the cluster configuration after updating the units.

For more information, see How to Update Control Center Managed F-Series Firewalls.
