Enabling Split-Task VDOM mode

By default the FortiGate-7000F operates in Multi VDOM mode. Use the following steps to convert a FortiGate-7000F 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. 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 GUI or CLI and switch to Split-Task VDOM mode:

    • From the CLI, enter the following command:

      config system global

      set vdom-mode split-vdom

      end

      You are logged out of the CLI.

    • From the GUI go to System > Settings > System Operation Settings, enable Virtual Domains, select Split-Task VDOM and select OK.

      You don't need to add any management interfaces to the management VDOM. The required management interfaces and HA interfaces are added to the management VDOM automatically.

      You are logged out of the GUI.

  4. Log back into the CLI or GUI.

    The FortiGate-7000F will be operating in Split-Task VDOM mode and FortiGate Telemetry will be enabled.
