  1. On the FortiGate, go to Security Fabric > Settings.
  2. Enable FortiClient Endpoint Management System (EMS).
  3. Click the plus bar to add an EMS server.
  4. Enter a name for the server, it's IP/Domain Name, Serial Number, Admin User, and Password (if required) in the requisite fields.
  5. Add up to two more servers as needed.

  6. Click Apply.
To configure FortiClient EMS servers using the CLI:
config endpoint-control fctems
    edit "ems_133"
        set server "172.16.200.133"
        set serial-number "FCTEMS1234567890"
        set https-port 10443
        set admin-username "admin"
    next
    edit "ems_134"
        set server "172.16.200.134"
        set serial-number "FCTEMS1234567891"
