Checking device configuration status

In the Device Manager pane, when you select a device, you can view that device’s basic information under the device dashboard. You can also check if the current configuration file of the device stored in the FortiManager repository is in sync with the one running on the device.

If you make any configuration changes to a device directly, rather than using the FortiManager system, the configuration on the device and the configuration saved in the FortiManager repository will be out of sync. In this case, you can re synchronize with the device by retrieving the configuration from the device and saving it to the FortiManager repository.

You can use the following procedures when checking device configuration status on a FortiGate, FortiCarrier, or FortiSwitch.

To check the status of a configuration installation on a FortiGate unit:
  1. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups and select a device group.
  2. In the lower tree menu, select a device. The content pane displays the device dashboard.
  3. In the dashboard, locate the Configuration and Installation Status widget.
  4. The Configuration and Installation Status widget shows the following information:
