With FortiManager 7.0.1 and later, you can upgrade ADOM version 6.4 to 7.0. This topic describes the recommended ADOM upgrade method. See also Managing mixed FortiOS versions 6.4 and 7.0 in a single ADOM 7.0.1.
- In ADOM version 6.4, upgrade all FortiGates to FortiOS version 7.0.x.
For example, FortiGates in ADOM version 6.4 are running FortiOS 6.4.x, and the FortiOS version should be upgraded to 7.0.x.
After upgrading FortiOS for all FortiGates in ADOM version 6.4, you see FortiGates are running FortiOS 7.0.1.
- Go to System Settings > All ADOMs, and from the More menu, select Upgrade.
Alternately, you can double-click an ADOM to open it for editing, and click 7.0 to upgrade the ADOM.
A confirmation dialog box is displayed. Click OK to initiate the ADOM upgrade.
The ADOM upgrades from 6.4 to 7.0, and the FortiManager GUI automatically displays features that are available with version 7.0.
For example, all objects in the database for policy and objects are converted to 7.0. You can create a new firewall policy for version 7.0 and install it to FortiGates.
Following is an example of a 7.0 feature available in the firewall policy:
From the Installation wizard, you can preview the changes before you install them to FortiGates:
