Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Backups and Recovery

  • Last updated on

To back up and restore configurations for the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, a Portable Archive (PAR) file containing all configuration settings is used. 

The following items are backed up in PAR files: 

  • Configuration data
  • Licenses

The following items are NOT backed up and must be backed up separately:

  • Log files of the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall.
  • Eventing database

For information on how to back up and restore the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, see: How to Back Up and Restore Firewall Configurations.

Recover the Firewall Using a USB Flash Drive

You can also use a USB flash drive to recover your Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. Import the CloudGen Firewall ISO image, PAR/PCA files, and hotfixes to the drive and install them on the appliance.

For more information, see How to Recover a CloudGen Firewall with a USB Flash Drive. 

Reset a Hardware Firewall to Factory Defaults 

If your hardware appliance needs to be reverted to its initial state, you can reset the appliance to factory defaults by using a USB flash drive. 

For more information, see How to Reset a Hardware F-Series Firewall to Factory Defaults.

Using Active Recovery Technology (ART) 

Active Recovery Technology (ART) recovers your firewall from the command-line interface using a serial console or SSH. The ART menu allows administrators to reinstall the firewall and perform minor configuration changes. The ART menu is entered either by pressing a key when prompted while the system boots up or if selected when rebooting the firewall via Barracuda Firewall Admin.

For more information, see How to Use Active Recovery Technology (ART).
