FortiGate-7000E Handbook

Remote logging for individual FPMs

The FortiGate-7000E supports using VDOM exception functionality to configure different remote logging settings for each FPM. As described in the following sections, you can:

  • Configure individual FPMs to send log messages to different FortiAnalyzers or syslog servers.
  • Configure VDOMs on individual FPMs to send log messages to different FortiAnalyzers or syslog servers.

Note

This configuration is only supported for fortianalyzer and syslogd and not for fortianalyzer2, fortianalyzer3, fortianalyzer-cloud, syslogd2, syslogd3, and syslogd4.

Note

When you have completed the VDOM exception configurations described in this section, the FIMs and FPMs will have different logging configurations. In addition, some configurations that are affected by the logging configuration (for example, DLP content archiving) will be different on some modules. Because of this, using the various methods available to check for synchronization between modules will show that the configurations of the modules are not synchronized. The FortiGate-7000E will continue to operate normally even with these configuration synchronization issues.
