FortiGate-6000 Handbook

Enabling Split-Task VDOM mode

By default the FortiGate-6000 operates in Multi VDOM mode. Use the following steps to convert a FortiGate-6000 from Multi VDOM mode to Split-Task VDOM mode. Converting to Split-Task VDOM mode involves first disabling VDOMs and then enabling Split-Task VDOM mode.

The following includes CLI steps, and where possible, GUI steps. All of these steps can be completed from the CLI without using the GUI. Some of these steps cannot be completed from the GUI. For example, you cannot use the GUI to turn off VDOMs from Multi VDOM mode.

  1. If required, delete all VDOMs except for mgmt-vdom and root.
  2. Log into the CLI and enter the following command to turn off VDOMs:

    config global

    config system global

    set vdom-mode no-vdom

    end

    You are logged out of the CLI.

  3. Log into the CLI and enter the following command to switch to Split-Task VDOM mode:

    config system global

    set vdom-mode split-vdom

    end

    You are logged out of the CLI.

  4. Log into the CLI or GUI.

    The FortiGate-6000 will be operating in Split-Task VDOM mode and you can go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors to verify that Security Fabric Setup is enabled.
