ADOM and Non-ADOM Modes

You can manage FortiAIOps in the ADOM or non-ADOM mode. For more information on creating and managing ADOMs, see the FortiManager Administration Guide.

Notes:

  • While creating an ADOM, select FortiGate version 6.4 or 7.0 to enable access to FortiAIOps.
  • In the ADOM mode, you can add FortiGate controllers managed by the particular ADOM of the FortiManager. FortiAIOps configures and displays data for only the devices managed by the particular ADOM.
  • In the non-ADOM mode, you can add any FortiGate controllers managed by FortiManager.
  • If you move a FortiGate controller to a different ADOM, then it is directly managed in the new ADOM.

After you add FortiGates to FortiAIOps, it communicates with FortiManager to obtain data.

By default, ADOMs are disabled. Enabling and configuring ADOMs can only be done by super user administrators.

Enabling the ADOM Mode

To enable the ADOM mode, log in to the FortiManager as a super user administrator.

  1. Go to System Settings > Dashboard.
  2. In the System Information widget, toggle the Administrative Domain switch to ON.
    You will be automatically logged out of the FortiManager and returned to the log in screen.

Disabling the ADOM Mode

To disable the ADOM Mode, you are required to remove all the devices from non-root ADOMs. That is, add all devices to the root ADOM.

  1. Delete all non-root ADOMs.
    Only after removing all the non-root ADOMs can ADOMs be disabled.
  2. Go to System Settings > Dashboard.
  3. In the System Information widget, toggle the Administrative Domain switch to OFF.
    You will be automatically logged out of the FortiManager and returned to the log in screen.

Note: The ADOMs feature cannot be disabled if ADOMs are still configured and have managed devices in them.
