Retrieve settings from broken barracuda spam and virus firewall

I have a broken Barracuda Spam and Virus 300 firewall. There is a hardware glitch on it which causes the unit to shut down within seconds of powering up. I am wondering if there is a way to get the configuration settings from the internal hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.

has to see if can get into recovery mode for further connection to do troubleshooting, otherwise w/o prev backup and tech support advice it is likely need to be refurnish. I am also doubtful the data in the HDD are of good integrity state (passed eror checksum) since the diagnostic can failed.
You should create a backup of your system on a regular basis to insure you can restore your configuration in the event of a data corruption.

When you restore a backup file to a new Barracuda Web Application Firewall that is not configured, you need to configure the new system IP address and DNS information on the BASIC > IP Configuration page.

Note the following about the backup file:
•Do not edit backup files. Any configuration changes you want will need to be done through the web interface. The configuration backup file contains a checksum that prevents the file from being uploaded to the system if any changes are made.
•The following information is not included in the backup file:
  ◦System password
  ◦System IP address information

I saw some attempt to "virtualise" a Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall, clone an img and into another HDD. But still need the root password to get into file system even via the virtual machine image

The config file location can be ref as those Core System Configuration Files under the Linux OS, see more wrt to NG FW though, it may be something close to others......
