FortiManager support for FortiAnalyzer HA

You can manage FortiAnalyzer HA via FortiManager. FortiManager retrieves the cluster member list and updates the information whenever it changes, including FortiAnalyzer HA failover or a change in members.

To enable support for FortiAnalyzer HA:
  1. Go to Device Manager > Device and Groups.
  2. Click the down arrow next to Add Devices. Select Add FortiAnalyzer.

    The Add FortiAnalyzer dialog opens.

  3. From the Add FortiAnalyzer box, add FortiAnalyzer HA to FortiManager DVM by HA cluster's VIP, and click Next.

    The FortiAnalyzer HA is discovered with its HA status information. Click Next to continue.

    FortiAnalyzer HA is added successfully. Click Finish.

  4. In the tree menu, select Managed FortiAnalyzer. The device status icon is shown as the HA cluster and the SN is shown as the primary SN.

    FortiManager DVM gets an update after the failover on FortiAnalyzer in 300 seconds. Here, the previous primary "FAZ-VMTM20001379" becomes the secondary, and the new primary is "FAZ-VMTM20001378".

    Note

    You can get the HA status update immediately, select the FortiAnalyzer device and either click Refresh Device from the toolbar, or right-click and select Refresh.

To check the DVM device list in the CLI:
  1. View the DVM device list once FortiAnalyzer HA is added to FortiManager:

    diagnose dvm device list

    It will have correct HA cluster information, including member list and role.

  2. View the DVM device list after the failover on FortiAnalyzer:

    diagnose dvm device list

    It will have the updated HA cluster information. The previous primary changes to secondary and vice versa.
