Multiple static access controller addresses or FQDN

FortiExtender enables you to specify multiple access controllers while "ac-discovery-type" is static, or specify FQDN (static-ac-ip-addr has been changed to static-ac-addr).

To configure multiple static access controller or FQDN:
config system management fortigate
    set ac-discovery-type static
    config static-ac-addr <=== New table which replaced previous static-ac-ip-addr
        edit 1
            set server 192.168.1.99
        next
        edit 2
            set server fortisase.fortiextender.com
        next
        ...
    end
    set ac-ctl-port 5246
    set ac-data-port 25246
    set discovery-intf wan lan port1 port2 port3 port4
    set ingress-intf
end

The "static-ac-ip-addr" in pre-7.0.2 releases has now been replaced by "static-ac-addr" which is a table that allows you to configure up to 16 entries. For each entry, you can specify the server as in FQDN string or IPv4-address string format.

Note

If you have static-ac-ip-addr specified in a pre-7.0.2 version of ForitExtender OS, an entry "1" will be automatically generated and its value of "server" will be the string configured in "static-ac-ip-addr" of old version, after you have upgraded to 7.0.2.
