Deploying the FortiGate-VM

  1. Prepare your OCI environment as detailed in Configuring the OCI VCN if you do not have one yet.
  2. To take advantage of A-P HA, you need four VNICs (port1 to port4) on each FortiGate-VM that constitutes an A-P HA cluster. Configure all required network interfaces (OCI VNICs and FortiGate-VM network interface configuration) that support A-P HA. You must choose an OCI instance type that supports at least four VNICs.
  3. Ensure you configure the security list on each subnet for egress and ingress interfaces appropriately. It is particularly important that the management interfaces have egress Internet access for API calls to the OCI metadata server.
  4. Ensure that you attached four NICs to each FortiGate and that you assigned the static private IP address.
