The Barracuda Message Archiver Outlook Plug-in Deployment

Posted By:  Aseem Asthana, Cain Random, and Kevin Sheu The installation of the Microsoft Outlook Add-In is a straightforward configuration for your organization.  The following are the preliminary steps for deploying your Add-In.
  1. Download the Outlook Add-In Deployment Kit from Users > Client Configuration in your Barracuda Message Archiver.
  2. Extract the contents somewhere easily accessible. It should contain:
    1. Installer for the add-in for Outlook 2010 64-bit
    2. Installer for the add-in for all other versions of Outlook
    3. The administrator module for the add-in
    4. A copy of the full deployment guide
  3. Move (or copy) the Barracuda Message Archiver Outlook Add-In 3.0.adm file to your local %systemroot%\inf, directory. Typically, this will be: c:\winnt\inf
  4. Copy the .msi file(s) to a location that is accessible by your users.
  5. Open the GPO Editor for the organization that will be using the add-in (e.g. the default domain policy).
  6. Either edit the default policy or create a new policy object, then link it to the desired container; for example, the particular OU containing the computers on which the add-in will be installed.
  7. Expand “Machine Configurations” and right-click on “Administrative Templates”, select “All Tasks”, then “Add/Remove Templates”.
  8. Navigate to %systemroot%\inf, select Barracuda Message Archiver Outlook Add-In 3.0.adm, and press “Add…”.
At this point, the preliminary setup is complete.  The next steps will simply be to configure the Add-In and deploy the MSI file, both of which can be configured through the GPO Editor.  The directions are available as part of the installation kit that in step 2.
