Enable GUI access
To configure the port1 IP address and netmask:
- In your hypervisor manager, start the FortiManager VM and access the console window. You might need to press Enter to see the login prompt.
- At the FortiManager VM login prompt, enter the username admin, then press Enter. By default, there is no password.
- Using CLI commands, configure the port1 IP address and netmask.
config system interface
set ip <IP address> <netmask>
The port management interface should match the first network adapter and virtual switch that you have configured in the hypervisor virtual machine settings.
- To configure the default gateway, enter the following commands:
config system route
set device port1
set gateway <gateway_ipv4_address>
The Customer Service & Support portal does not currently support IPv6 for FortiManager VM license validation. You must specify an IPv4 address in both the support portal and the port management interface.
Connect to the GUI
Once you have configured a port's IP address and network mask, launch a web browser and enter the IP address you configured for the port management interface. At the login page, enter the user name
admin and no password, then select Login.
