Refer to the FortiLink Compatibility table to find which FortiSwitchOS versions support which FortiOS versions.

See the Fortinet Document Library for Managed FortiSwitch documentation.

NOTE: FortiLink is not supported in transparent mode.

The maximum number of supported FortiSwitch units depends on the FortiGate model:

FortiGate Model Range Number of FortiSwitch Units Supported
FortiGate 40F, 91E, FortiGate-VM01 8
FortiGate 60F, 6xE, 80F, 8xE, 90E 16
FortiGate 100D, FortiGate-VM02 24
FortiGate 100E, 100EF, 100F, 101E, 140E, 140E-POE 32
FortiGate 200E, 201E 64
FortiGate 300D to 500D 48
FortiGate 300E to 500E 72
FortiGate 600D to 900D and FortiGate-VM04 64
FortiGate 600E to 900E 96
FortiGate 1000D to 15xxD 128
FortiGate 1100E to 25xxE 196
FortiGate-3xxx and up and FortiGate-VM08 and up 300

What’s new in FortiOS 7.0.2

The following list contains new managed FortiSwitch features added in FortiOS 7.0.2.

  • The IGMP-snooping proxy has been enhanced. Before FortiOS 7.0.2, you could use the CLI to enable IGMP proxy on a system-wide basis. Now, you can use the CLI to enable IGMP proxy per FortiSwitch unit.
  • You can now configure the IGMP-snooping querier version 2 or 3. When the IGMP querier version 2 is configured, the managed FortiSwitch unit will send IGMP version-2 queries when no external querier is present. When the IGMP querier version 3 is configured, the managed FortiSwitch unit will send IGMP version-3 queries when no external querier is present.
  • A Procend 180-T DSL transceiver (FN-TRAN-DSL) that is plugged in to a FortiGate-managed FortiSwitch port can now be managed by a FortiGate unit. The management of the DSL transceiver and the FortiSwitch port includes the ability to program the physical-layer attributes on the DSL module, retrieve the status and statistics from the module, upgrade the module's firmware, and reset the module.
  • You can now specify FortiSwitch groups in NAC policies using the GUI and CLI. In previous FortiOS versions, you specified individual managed FortiSwitch units when creating a NAC policy using the set switch-scope command or selecting the FortiSwitch units in the Create NAC Policy window. In FortiOS 7.0.2, the set switch-scope command has been replaced with the set switch-group command, and the Create NAC Policy window allows you to specify FortiSwitch groups. You can select more than one FortiSwitch group in the CLI and GUI, and the same FortiSwitch unit can be included in more than one FortiSwitch group. If no FortiSwitch group is specified in the set switch-group command, all FortiSwitch groups are used for the NAC policy.
