BGP Neighbors (per-device management)

When per-device management is enabled for SD-WAN, you can create SD-WAN rules that include Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) neighbors. You must create BGP neighbors for FortiGate devices before you can add them to the SD-WAN network.

To create BGP Neighbors for FortiGate devices:
  1. Go to Device Manager > [FortiGate] > Router > BGP.
  2. Under Neighbors, click Create New.
  3. In the Create New Neighbor screen, specify the IP and Remote AS. Click OK. Repeat this step to add multiple neighbors.
To configure BGP Neighbor for SD-WAN (per-device management):
  1. Ensure that you are in the correct ADOM and that SD-WAN per-device management is enabled for the ADOM.
  2. Go to Device Manager > SD-WAN > SD-WAN.
  3. Click Create New.

    The Create New SD-WAN pane opens.

  4. In the Device list, select the FortiGate device to which you added BGP Neighbors.

    The BGP Neighbors added to the FortiGate (Device Manager) automatically appear under Neighbor.

  5. Toggle the SD-WAN Status to ON.
  6. Configure the following Advanced Options:

    fail-alert-interfaces

    Select the port from the drop-down.

    fail-detect

    Select enable or disable.

    neighbor-hold-boot-time

    Specify in seconds.

    neighbor-hold-down

    Select enable or disable.

    neighbor-hold-down-time

    Specify in seconds.

  7. Click OK.
