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.
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|
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|
The type of the configuration.
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.|
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.|
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|
The encryption type of the certificate
The type of certificate
Status of the certificate
|See/download/trash the certificate|
Opens up a dialogue box to upload a certificate. To configure the certificate, see the FortiADC Handbook.
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|
|Time||Time stamp of the log|
