Subscription-based VDOM license for FortiGate-VM S-series 7.0.2

The FortiGate-VM S-series licensing now supports subscription-based virtual domain (VDOM) licensing, using the new stackable subscription-based SKU.

The following describes the process for purchasing and applying the subscription-based VDOM license with FortiGate-VM S-series. The following assumes that the FortiGate-VM with the S-series license applied can connect to FortiGuard:

  1. Purchase the VDOM subscription license (SKU FC1-10-FGVVS-498-02-DD). This license adds five VDOMs to a FortiGate-VM S-series running FortiOS 7.0.1 or a later version. You can stack this SKU to add more VDOMs.
  2. Register the VDOM subscription license to the FortiGate-VM S-series license:
    1. In FortiCloud Asset Management, go to Products > Product List.
    2. View the desired FortiGate-VM.
    3. In Registration, click Add Licenses.
    4. Complete the steps to register the VDOM subscription license.

  3. FortiGate-VM retrieves the VDOM subscription license from FortiGuard. This can take up to two hours. Confirm that the FortiGate-VM has retrieved the license using the get system status command. The following shows example output when FortiOS has successfully retrieved the license:
