The FortiGate-7121F chassis is managed by two redundant System Management Modules (SMMs 1 and 2). Each SMM includes an ethernet connection as well as two switchable console ports that provide console connections to the modules in the chassis slots. Chassis modules include two Fortinet Interface Modules (FIMs) in slots 1 and 2 and up to ten Fortinet Processor Modules (FPMs) in slots 3 to 12. The active SMM controls chassis cooling and power management and provides an interface for managing the FIMs and FPMs in the chassis.

Note Do not operate the FortiGate-7121F chassis with open slots on the front or back panel. For optimum cooling performance and safety, chassis front panel slots 1 and 2 must contain FIMs. Front panel slots 3 to 12 must contain FPMs or FPM blank panels (also called dummy cards). In addition, all cooling fan trays, power supplies or power supply slot covers must be installed while the chassis is operating. The FPM blank panels shipped with the chassis should be kept available in case an FPM is removed from the chassis. If an FIM or FPM fails and you don't have a replacement FIM or FPM or an available blank panel, you should keep the failed FIM or FPM in the chassis slot until you receive a replacement.

Power is provided to the chassis using eight hot swappable 200-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz 2000W AC or -48Vdc to -60Vdc 2000W power supply units (PSUs).
