Barracuda Managed Workplace 10 Service Pack 3 introduces patch management for Windows 10 devices managed by Device Manager.
Previously, only devices managed by Onsite Manager could be patch managed.
In order for Windows devices to be kept up to date through patch management, the devices must be:
- running Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise edition
- running version 1607 or higher
- running OS build 14393.321 or higher
Barracuda Managed Workplace patch management is now handled by a separate web application named Barracuda Managed Workplace Update Service, which will be installed automatically when you upgrade to Barracuda Managed Workplace 10.3. For more information about the Barracuda Managed Workplace Update Service, see the Setup Guide.
This change supports stability and performance improvements for managing patches. These features do not change the User Interface.
Infrascale Service Module
Barracuda Managed Workplace introduces a new setting for the Infrascale Disaster Recovery service module. Now, when defining a workstation backup configuration policy, you also have the option to include individual folders on devices on your sites.
You also now have option to run the Workstation Backup Configuration Policy on an hourly basis.
These changes are designed to give you more flexibility when using Infrascale’s powerful backup and recovery tools.
VMWare Service Module
Barracuda Managed Workplace includes a number of updates for the VMWare service module.
The service module now displays datastores that are inactive. Inactive datastores were not previously shown in lists of datastores.
Hosts are now displayed with their IP addresses in the name, since it is common for multiple hosts to have the same name.
By default, the default data storage alert threshold has been changed to 90%.
Previously, data storage alert thresholds were calculated based on the combined usage of all instances. Now, alert thresholds are calculated based on individual instance usage.
Barracuda Managed Workplace 10 SP3 also contains customer-driven fixes to improve performance and your overall Barracuda Managed Workplace experience. To view or search the fixed issues, visit the Partner Portal and select 10.3 from the Version list.
