Adding devices

When you add a device to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, you also define the configuration and control when to install the configuration to the device.

Note

Before you add devices to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA, you must add them to FortiManager.

After you add the device, you can change the settings by editing the assigned profile or by overriding settings for each device.

To add a device:
  1. Ensure that you have created profiles for hub and edge devices. See Profile.
  2. Go to Configuration > Device.
  3. In the toolbar, click + Device.

    The Device dialog box opens.

  4. On the General tab, configure the following settings:

    Option

    Description

    Device Name Enter the name of the device.
    Host Name Enter the host name.
    Profile Name Select a profile from the dropdown, or click Create to create a new profile.
    First Online Action

    Specify how to manage device configuration when the device comes online for the first time. Choose from:

    • NONE: Select to disable automatic configuration action. Instead you can manually initiate configuration installation after adding the device to SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA.
    • RETRIEVE_CONFIG: Select to import some of the configuration settings from the device when the device comes online for the first time. Settings such as host name, WAN port, LAN/DMZ port, and static route are imported. WAN and LAN settings from the imported configuration automatically override the assigned WAN and LAN settings from the SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA profile. You should use the profile to assign additional settings.
    • SYNC_CONFIG: Select to install the SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA configuration associated with the profile when the device comes online for the first time.
    Serial Number Enter the device serial number.
    Type Enter the device type.
    Region Select a region from the dropdown, or click Create Region to create a new region.
  5. Click OK.
