Whatʼs new in FortiOS 7.0.1

The following list contains new managed FortiSwitch features added in FortiOS 7.0.1. Click on a link to navigate to that section for further information:

  • You can now use LAN segments when configuring FortiSwitch NAC settings to prevent hosts from having to renew IP addresses when moving to another VLAN. For details, refer to Configuring the FortiSwitch NAC settings.
  • Use the new diagnose switch-controller switch-info port-properties [<FortiSwitch_serial_number>] [<port_name>] command to check the port properties of managed FortiSwitch units. For details, refer to Configuring port speed and status.
  • You can now configure in FortiOS which DHCP servers that DHCP snooping includes in the server access list. These servers on the list are allowed to respond to DHCP requests. For details, refer to Configuring the DHCP server access list.
  • You can now change the order in which FortiSwitch units are displayed in the Topology view. For details, refer to Re-ordering FortiSwitch units in the Topology view.
  • You can now configure a dynamic firewall address for devices and use it in a NAC policy. When a device matches the NAC policy, the MAC address for that device is automatically assigned to the dynamic firewall address, which can be used in firewall policies to control traffic from/to these devices. For details, refer to Creating a device policy.
  • Three SNMP OIDs have been added to the FortiOS enterprise MIB 2 tables. They report the FortiSwitch port status and FortiSwitch CPU and memory statistics. For details, refer to SNMP OIDs.
