FortiMeter - Microsoft Hyper-V Instances
FortiMeter now supports Microsoft Hyper-V in addition to support for VMware, KVM, and Xen.
The Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM must be added to the FortiManager system before authorization. Once the Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM is authorized, it can receive updates from FortiManager and process traffic. An unauthorized Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM cannot receive updates from FortiManager or process traffic.
Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM support requires FortiManager 6.2.0 or a later version.
To authorize a Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM on FortiManager using the GUI:
- Ensure that the VM is registered to the FortiManager. See the FortiManager 6.2.0 Administration Guide.
- Ensure that you are in the correct ADOM.
- Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups > Unauthorized Devices.
- Select the Microsoft Hyper-V FortiOS-VM, then click Authorize in the toolbar, right-click on a device then select Authorize, or double-click on a device. The Authorize Device(s) dialog box opens. An unauthorized device can use firewall services for up to 48 hours.
