Increase maximum number of supported VLANs

VLAN pooling in SSIDs allow you to load-balance users into various VLANs. To service larger deployments, FortiGate 2U and high-end models support up to 64 VLANs.

To configure VLAN pooling in the GUI:
  1. Go to WiFi & Switch Controller > SSIDs and click Create New > SSID.
  2. Enable VLAN pooling and select a method (Managed AP Group, Round Robin, or Hash).
  3. In the table, click Create New.
  4. Enter an ID, and if using the Managed AP Group method, select a group from the dropdown.
  5. Click OK and add more VLAN pool entries as needed.

  6. Edit the remaining SSID settings as needed.
  7. Click OK.
To configure VLAN pooling in the CLI:
config wireless-controller vap
    edit <name>
        ...
        set vlan-pooling {wtp-group | round-robin | hash | disable}
        config vlan-pool
            edit <id>
                set wtp-group <string>
            next
        end
        ...
    next
end
