Configuring the FortiGate-7000F SLBC management interface
To be able to use FortiGate-7000F special SLBC management interface features, such as being able to log into any FIM or FPM using the management interface IP address and a special port number, you need to use the following command to select a FortiGate-7000F management interface to be the SLBC management interface.
You can use any of the FIM or FPM management interfaces to be the SLBC management interface. The following example uses the MGMT 1 interface of the FIM in slot 1. In the GUI and CLI the name of this interface is 1-mgmt1.
Enter the following command to set the 1-mgmt1 interface to be the SLBC management interface:
config load-balance setting
set slbc-mgmt-intf 1-mgmt1
To manage individual FIMs or FPMs using special management ports, the SLBC interface must be connected to a network.
