Adding a split-task VDOM

The Split-Task VDOM mode creates two VDOMs automatically: FG-traffic and root. Additional VDOMs cannot be added.

FG-traffic is a regular VDOM and can contain policies, UTM profiles and it will handle the traffic like the no-VDOM mode. The root VDOM is only for management and it cannot have policies or profiles.

To add a Split-Task VDOM to a FortiGate device:
  1. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups.
  2. In the toolbar, select Table View from the dropdown menu.
  3. In the tree menu, click the group. The devices in the group are displayed in the content pane.
  4. In the content pane, right-click a device and select Add VDOM.
  5. Select Split-Task VDOM, and click OK.
