  2. Click Create New. The Add Model FortiSwitch pane is displayed.

    When the FortiSwitch is online, FortiManager sets the firmware to the enforced version.

    Here, the firmware is upgraded from the previous build 194 to build 202.

To enforce a firmware version on an existing FortiSwitch:

  3. Select the appropriate option from the quick status bar, and locate the switch in the content pane.
  4. Double-click on the switch, select the switch and click Edit from the toolbar, or right-click on the switch and select Edit.
