When per-device management is enabled, you can configure changes on each managed switch. The following steps provide an overview of using per-device FortiSwitch management:
- Enable per-device management. See Enabling per-device management.
- Configure policies and 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 FortiSwitch profiles.
NAC policies can be created in both per-device management and central management. See Create a new NAC policy.
- Configure ports for each managed switch.
When you configure ports, you can assign the profiles and policies that you created. See Configuring a port on a single FortiSwitch.
- Install changes to managed switches. See Installing changes to managed switches.
