The Barracuda Managed Workplace installer will not allow you to proceed if you do not have the correct software configuration in place.

As an example, the Barracuda Managed Workplace install engine will abort your upgrade if it determines that Windows SQL 2008 Service Pack 1 has not been applied.

If you are using a self-hosted version of Barracuda Managed Workplace, before upgrading to Barracuda Managed Workplace 10 or higher, it is highly recommended that you set the Max Degree of Parallelism setting in the SQL Server Properties window. Enabling this setting improves SQL performance during and after the upgrade.

To set the Max Degree of Parallelism setting
  1. In the SQL Server Properties window, click the Advanced page.
  2. In the Parallelism area, for the Max Degree of Parallelism setting, enter 1. By default this is set to 0.

If you are manually upgrading an Onsite Manager installed to a SQL instance other than LPIMWOMEXPRESS, please contact Support for assistance with moving your database to an instance using this name. Remote upgrades to Onsite Managers will continue to upgrade other instances without issue.

Barracuda Managed Workplace 12 SP1 MR1 requires .NET 4.6.0 or higher. If you do not have .NET 4.6.0 or higher installed, it will be installed as part of Barracuda Managed Workplace, which may require a restart. Please see “Reboot After Install” in the Barracuda Managed Workplace Setup Guide for details.
