The Install Wizard includes access to the Install Device Settings (only) operation. The Install Device Settings (only) operation pushes the device configuration from FortiManager device layer to a FortiGate device.
Before you initiate the installation, you can access an installation preview. If you do not want to install the changes, you can cancel the operation without modifying anything.
FortiManager compares the configuration information that it has with the current configuration on the FortiGate. It then pushes the necessary configuration changes to the FortiGate to ensure that the FortiGate is synchronized with FortiManager.
The install operation can include only device settings or device settings and policy packages. When policy packages are included, the policies defined in the policy package are inserted into the device database, where they overwrite any related settings existing in the device database.
