When creating a new FortiGate CNF instance in the FortiGate CNF console, you must enable FortiManager Mode in order to manage the instance in FortiManager. This setting cannot be changed after the instance is created.

  2. In FortiManager, go to Device & Groups > Add Device.

  3. Click Discover Device.

  4. Enter the IP Address of the FortiGate CNF instance.

  5. Enable Use Legacy Device Login and enter the User Name and Password, then click Next.

  6. Update or enter any required details and click Next.

  7. Click Finish. The FortiGate CNF instance is added to FortiManager. There may be a short delay before the device is available.

  8. Import the FG-traffic policy package from the FortiManager instance into FortiManager. Use this policy package to install policies to the FortiGate CNF instance.

Note

When adding a FortiGate CNF instance, you will only see details of the primary member from the cluster, and other cluster members are not displayed in the Cluster Members list on FortiManager.
