How to Add Additional Storage to your Azure Deployment

  • Last updated on

Barracuda Message Archiver on Azure is no longer available for purchase; Barracuda Message Archiver virtual machines already deployed on Azure will continue to be supported.

Virtual machines (VMs) deployed through Azure Gallery prior to mid February, 2015 do not support Disk Expansion. If you deployed prior to this time period and want to expand the disk, you must re-deploy the VM using the latest VM image available in Azure Gallery.

  1. Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal.
  2. Click Browse, and then click Virtual Machines:

  7. Enter the disk size in 1023 GB increments; note that Azure virtual machine disks have a limit of 1023 GB. Add additional disks up to the size limit of your license:

  8. Set Host Caching to None:

    If your deployment requires more than 1023GB, attach additional disks.

    During the reboot process, the Barracuda Message Archiver provisions the additional storage. This can take some time depending on the region where your virtual machine is located and the amount of provisioned storage.

  13. Once the Barracuda Message Archiver is back online, log in to the Barracuda Message Archiver web interface, and go to the ADVANCED > Storage Manager page to verify disk storage:
