Global repository

The Global Repository collects various firmwares, configurations, templates, etc. Whatever you upload here can be applied in the individual ADC. It is useful if you wish to mass produce certain types of ADC's, say, if you want them all configured in a certain way, you might upload a configuration and then apply it to each ADC.

Firmware

Global Repository > Firmware. Firmware repository shows you the available firmwares that you can apply to the individual ADC. When you upload a firmware here, it will appear in the individual ADC system as an option which you can boot up (see: Individual ADC > System > Firmware.)

See information on upgrading firmware in the FortiADC Handbook.

Version The version of the firmware
Platform The platform the firmware is running on
Build Number The build number of the firmware
Opens up a dialogue box where you can upload a file.
Download the firmware or trash it

Configuration

Global Repository > Configuration. Configuration repository shows you the available configurations that you can apply to the individual ADC. These configurations will appear as options in Individual ADC > System  > Configuration > Restore. You can apply them there.

Name Name of the configuration
Device Name of the device from which the configuration originates
Time Time when the configuration was created
Type

The type of the configuration.

  • Full -- will show all the default and hidden items
  • No full option -- will show only the key items, no default settings and no hidden settings

Note: There is now only the 'full' option.

User The user who created the configuration
Version The ADC version which the configuration is based off of
Platform The platform the configuration is running on
Build Number The build number of the configuration
View, download, or trash the configuration
Opens a dialogue box where you can upload a configuration. Name it, choose a file, and save.

Command

Global Repository > Command. Command repository shows you the available commands that you can apply to the individual ADC. They will appear as options in Individual ADC > System> Command, where you can apply them. See the CLI reference.

Name Name of the command
Edit or trash the command
Opens up a dialogue asking you to name and create a command.

Certificate

Global Repository > Certificate. Certificate repository shows you the available certificates that you can apply to the individual ADC. They will appear as options in Individual ADC > System> Certificate, where you can apply them.

Name Name of the certificate
Subject The information of this certificate
Type

The encryption type of the certificate

  • RSA
  • ECDSA
Certificate Type

The type of certificate

  • Local
  • CA
Status

Status of the certificate

  • OK
  • Expired
  • Pending
See/download/trash the certificate

Opens up a dialogue box to upload a certificate. To configure the certificate, see the FortiADC Handbook.

Log

Collects all logs that the ADC's give. You can sort by device (seeing all the logs for only one device) and severity, as well as choose a start/end time for the log.

Device Name of the device from which the log originates
IP The IP of the device from which the log originates
Message The content of the log
