When per-device management is enabled, you can configure changes on each managed switch. The following steps provide an overview of using per-device FortiSwitch management:
- Enable per-device management. See Enabling per-device management.
- Configure policies and profiles for managed switches.
You can configure VLANs, security policies, LLDP profiles, and QoS policies, and the changes are saved to the FortiGate database. See FortiSwitch profiles.
- Configure ports for each managed switch.
When you configure ports, you can assign the profiles and policies that you created. See Configuring a port on a single FortiSwitch.
- Install changes to managed switches. See Installing changes to managed switches.
