You can use FortiSwitch Manager for central management or per-device management of managed FortiSwitch units. This section describes how to use per-device management.
Following is a high-level summary of how to use per-device management:
- Enable per-device management. See Enabling FortiSwitch per-device management.
- Configure profiles for managed switches.
You can configure VLANs, security policies, LLDP profiles, and QoS policies, and the changes are saved to the FortiGate database. See Configuring FortiSwitch profiles.
- Configure ports for managed switches by assigning profiles.
When you configure ports, you can assign the profiles and policies that you created. See Configuring FortiSwitch ports.
- Install changes to managed switches. See Installing changes to FortiSwitch devices.
