Transparent mode and VDOM mode

  • 1.  Transparent mode and VDOM mode

    Posted Nov 27, 2020 11:05 AM
    I have to Fortigate devices, one in transparent mode and one in VDOM mode. I want to manage the transparent mode Fortigate. Is it possible to pull an interface from the transparent mode Fortigate in order to manage it from the VDOM Fortigate.

    2 ways : Affect an IP to the Bridge, or create a specific VDOM for admin (out of band administration)

    to create a VDOM :

    In CLI :
    config system global
    set vdom-mode multi-vdom

    in GUI :
    in VDOM "global", go to "system>VDOM"
    create a new vdom with ADMIN as a name, then OK
    in "network>interface" edit a free interface and then change vdom to "ADMIN" vdom, assign IP addresse, active "ping, https and ssh" then OK
    in "network>static-routes" create a new route "" with the new interface you had create, assign an gateway
    plug and test

    Thanks MENGUY, this has helped me with the configuration and will be implementing this Wednesday. I will let the group know how it went.
