Creating a user_data file to pre-configure FortiGate-VM instances

The following example user_data file sets up a FortiGate-VM instance with a basic default configuration customized for your environment and requirements. This example configures interfaces, and adds a DNS server and two firewall policies that allow any traffic to pass between the port2 and port3 interfaces. These policies make it easier to test HA failover.

In addition, the MTU of the port4 interface is set to be compatible with the OpenStack 10 environment, which by default, has an MTU of 1446. (In the user_data file, the MTU of port4 is set to 1400.) Using the same MTU setting as the OpenStack 10 environment enables the HA heartbeat interfaces to communicate effectively over the ha-sync network.

See these pages for more information on RedHat OpenStack networks and MTU values:

The following example user_data file could be used for fgt-vm-1. The user_data file for fgt-vm-2 would be the same except for the hostname.
