8.0.3 Migration Notes

  • Last updated on
Barracuda Firewall Admin

After updating a system, you must also download Firewall Admin with the same version. Firewall Admin is backward-compatible. That means you can manage 7.x and 8.x F-Series Firewalls and Control Centers with Firewall Admin 8.x.

Always use the latest version of Barracuda Firewall Admin.



The new DNS service is based on the commonly known BIND standard. In case a recursive DNS server is configured, the DNS service automatically configures empty zones. This prevents the firewall from sending meaningless queries to Internet servers that cannot handle them.

Note that this option cannot be disabled when the firewall is configured to operate in recursive mode.

When migrating to firmware 8.0.3, forward zones from your current configuration will be deleted and not migrated.

Read the Release Notes, especially the Known Issues section, for the firmware version that you want to update to.

For more information, see 8.0.3 Release Notes .
