FortiManager firmware upgrade from FortiGuard servers

You can upgrade FortiManager firmware by using images available on FortiGuard servers. A green checkmark beside the available firmware images indicates the recommended FortiManager upgrade path. You can also upgrade to a firmware image that is not recommended if desired.

To upgrade FortiManager firmware in the GUI:
  1. Go to System Settings.
  2. In the System Information widget, beside Firmware Version, click Update Firmware.

    The Firmware Management dialog box opens.

  3. From the FortiGuard Firmware box, select the version of FortiManager for the upgrade, and click OK.

    The FortiGuard Firmware box displays all FortiManager firmware images available for upgrade. A green checkmark displays beside the recommended image for FortiManager upgrade.

    Note

    Because this image was captured before the release of FortiManager 6.4.0, a green checkmark is not yet available.

    If you select an image without a green checkmark, a confirmation dialog box is displayed. Click OK to continue.

    FortiManager downloads the firmware image from FortiGuard.

    FortiManager uses the downloaded image to update its firmware, and then restarts.

    After FortiManager restarts, the upgrade is complete.
