Administration Guide

Introduction

This guide provides information about configuring a FortiSwitch unit in standalone mode. In standalone mode, you manage the FortiSwitch unit by connecting directly to the unit, either using the web-based manager (also known as the GUI) or the CLI.

If you will be managing your FortiSwitch unit using a FortiGate unit, refer to the following guide: FortiSwitch Devices Managed by FortiOS 7.0.

This section covers the following topics:

Supported models

This guide is for all FortiSwitch models that are supported by FortiSwitchOS, which includes all of the D-series, E-series, and F-series models.

Whatʼs new in FortiSwitchOS 7.0.4

Release 7.0.4 provides the following new features:

  • Administrators can now use the following commands to control whether users can log in with the FortiSwitchOS console port:
    config system console
    	set login {enable | disable}
    end			

    By default, users can log in with the FortiSwitchOS console port.

  • You can now set the speed of ports 21-28 of the FSR-124D model to 100 Mbps full-duplex (100full) and 100 MBps half-duplex (100half) to support the 100Base-FX module:
    config switch physical-port
    	edit port {port21-port28}
    		set speed {auto | 100full | 100half | 1000full | 1000auto}
    	next
    end
  • You can now change how long the FortiSwitch CPU usage must be higher than the specified threshold before an SNMP v3 notification (trap) is reported.
    config system snmp sysinfo
    	set trap-high-cpu-interval {1min | 10min | 30min | 1hr | 12hr | 24hr}
    end

Refer to the FortiSwitch feature matrix for details about the features supported by each FortiSwitch model.

Before you begin

Before you start administrating your FortiSwitch unit, it is assumed that you have completed the initial configuration of the FortiSwitch unit, as outlined in the QuickStart Guide for your FortiSwitch model and have administrative access to the FortiSwitch unit’s GUI and CLI.
