Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

conftool

  • Last updated on

To rebuild database files or the entire configuration tree, use the conftool utility. You can use conftool either for a single Barracuda CloudGen Firewall configuration or for a Barracuda Firewall Control Center range configuration. Rebuilding the configuration tree might be necessary if it shows inconsistent entries, such as when Mail Gateway configuration objects suddenly appear in the Firewall configuration section. Such an error is usually caused by invalid, corrupt, or inconsistent database files.
