Important Notes Before Migrating
Split Control Centers
If you are running split Control Centers (multiple Control Centers in a parent-to-child relation), you must perform a series of steps in order to use split Control Centers with a simplified configuration.
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.
