Enable GUI access

To enable GUI access to the FortiManager VM you must configure the IP address and network mask of the appropriate port on the FortiManager VM. The following instructions use port 1.

The appropriate port can be determined by matching the MAC address of the network adapter and the HWaddr provided by the CLI command diagnose fmnetwork interface list.

To configure the port1 IP address and netmask:
  1. In your hypervisor manager, start the FortiManager VM and access the console window. You might need to press Enter to see the login prompt.

  2. At the FortiManager VM login prompt, enter the username admin, then press Enter. By default, there is no password.
  3. Using CLI commands, configure the port1 IP address and netmask.

    For example:

    config system interface

    edit port1

    set ip <IP address> <netmask>

    end

    The port management interface should match the first network adapter and virtual switch that you have configured in the hypervisor virtual machine settings.

  4. To configure the default gateway, enter the following commands:

    config system route

    edit 1

    set device port1

    set gateway <gateway_ipv4_address>

    next

    end

    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.

The GUI will open with an Evaluation License dialog box.
