System management

System Management groups together core server features such as data backup and restore, redundant servers, licensing and time zone settings. Options include:

Option

Definition

Database Archive

Set the age time for archived data files and configure the schedule for the Archive and Purge task.

See Database archive.

Database Backup/Restore

Schedule database backups, configure how many days to store local backups, and restore a database backup. Note that this restores backups on the FortiNAC server, not backups on a remote server.

See Backup or restore a database.

High Availability

Configuration for primary and secondary appliances for high availability. Saving changes to these settings restarts both the primary and secondary servers.

See High availability.

License Management

View or modify the license key for this server or an associated Application server.

See License management.

NTP and Time Zone

Reset the time zone and NTP server for your FortiNAC appliances. Typically the time zone and NTP server are configured using the Configuration Wizard during the initial appliance set up. Requires a server restart to take effect.

See NTP and time zone.

Power Management

Reboot or power off the FortiNAC server. In the case of a FortiNAC Control Server / Application Server pair, reboot or power off each server individually.

See Power management.

Remote Backup Configuration

Configure Scheduled Backups to use a remote server via FTP and/or SSH.

See Backup to a remote server.
