If you are importing different types of devices, each type must be contained within its own CSV file. For example, to import five printers and two vending machines, you must have a CSV file for the printers and a separate CSV file for the vending machines.
- Use a secure copy tool to copy the CSV file from your local PC to the FortiNAC appliance (e.g., use Winscp).
- Back up the current FortiNAC database before proceeding.
- From the FortiNAC appliance CLI, navigate to the following directory:
Run the DeviceImport tool as follows:
RunClient DeviceImport <absolutePathToImportFile> -type <t>
<absolutePathToImportFile> = The absolute path to the CSV file.
<t> = snmp |hub |wap |printer |server |PINGABLE |healthCare |IPS |Nessus |DialUpServer |StealthWatch |gaming |camera |UPS |cardReader |cashRegister |hvac |vending |pbx |generic |security |vpn |ipPhone |mobile |network |toplayer |linux |unix |windows |macosx
RunClient DeviceImport server.csv -type server
RunClient DeviceImport switches.csv -type snmp
- Log into the FortiNAC.
- Go to Network Devices > Topology and verify that the devices have been imported. If necessary, modify the device properties.
