Barracuda Web Security Agent

GPO Installation of the Barracuda WSA With Microsoft SBS 2008 Server

  • Last updated on

This article addresses some behaviors specific to Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) that the administrator needs to know about when installing the Barracuda Web Security Agent (WSA) using a GPO. 

First, complete the GPO installation of the Barracuda WSA. Refer to:

for information about installing the Barracuda WSA using a GPO to push it out to remote clients.

Next, note that using GPO deployment on Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) 2008 breaks the server-client trust relationship. The client has to be rejoined to the server, manually.

After completing GPO installation steps, the client computers will have the Barracuda WSA installed after a reboot. But in Active Directory, when pulling the computer back into the 'SBSComputers' OU, remote access services from the server side are no longer available. The server cannot connect to the client, even if the client still shows up in the console. You must remove the client from that folder and re-join it to the DC in order to re-establish the trust relationship.
