FortiManager™ Virtual Appliances 6.2.3 - BYOL

Product Overview

Fortinet FortiManager Security Management appliances allow you to centrally manage any number of Fortinet Network Security devices, from several to thousands, including FortiGate, FortiWiFi, and FortiCarrier.

Network administrators can better control their network by logically grouping devices into administrative domains (ADOMs), efficiently applying policies and distributing content security/firmware updates.

FortiManager is one of several versatile Network Security Management Products that provide a diversity of deployment types, growth flexibility, advanced customization through APIs and simple licensing all through central management and configuration.


  • Offers centralized configuration, policy-based provisioning, update management and end-to-end network monitoring for your Fortinet installation
  • You can further simplify management of your network security by grouping devices into geographic or functional administrative domains (ADOMs)
  • Easily manage VPN policy and configuration while leveraging FortiManager virtual appliances as a local distribution point for software and policy updates

Usage & Technical Prerequisites

Bring your own license (BYOL): In this scenario Exoscale provides the pure IaaS according to the Exoscale end user service agreements (EUSA).

In addition, an image of the virtual firewall can be provisioned via the Exoscale add-ons portfolio.

Please note, that in this license case Exoscale cannot guarantee the vendor support for the firewall image. It is the responsibility of the customer to purchase a license and a software subscription.

For using FortiManager 6.X it is important to know that the licenses are based on the used virtual cores of the virtual machine.

The customer needs to identify the necessary instance and take over the responsibility of sizing. After selecting the correct instance, the according number of licenses per core can be selected.

Technical Documentation

For the initial configuration (vendor web GUI/Exoscale console interface) the default credentials username: admin and no password can be used.

It is the responsibility of the customer to change this as soon as possible. Additionally, it is the responsibility of the customer to protect the admin interfaces port 22 (ssh) and port 443 (http) via security groups, so that only intended people can access them.

For technical limitations, please see the official vendor documentation.
