Barracuda Message Archiver requires an Energize Updates subscription for firmware upgrades and Technical Support.
If your Energize Updates Subscription expires, contact Barracuda Sales to renew your subscriptions.
Automatic Firmware Upgrades
Barracuda Message Archiver enables administrators to perform manual upgrades at a time that is convenient, however, Barracuda performs automatic upgrades for Barracuda Message Archiver devices with an active Energize Update subscription if they are running unsupported firmware versions. Note that firmware version 5.0 or higher is required for Barracuda Cloud Archiving Service connectivity.
After a major firmware version has completed the rollout phase, Barracuda sends an upgrade notification, providing 30-day's notice before the upgrade takes place. This notification includes information on new features, bug fixes, and end-of-life announcements.
