Configuring fabric connector

You are required to configure the Fabric Connectors if FortiWeb-VMs are in HA Active-Passive mode. This is to notify the load balancer to distribute the traffic to the new master node when fail-over occurs.

 

Generating RSA key

First of all, you need to generate the RSA key that will be used for authentication when FortiWeb-VM connects to the load balancer.

  1. Log in to a Linux system which has installed OpenSSL.
  2. Open a SHELL terminal, enter the following commands:
    openssl genrsa -out ./oci_api.key 2048
    openssl rsa -pubout -in ./oci_api.key -out ./oci_api_pub.key

    The file oci_api.key is the RSA private key file and the file oci_api_pub.key is its paired public key file.
  3. Log in OCI. Go to Governance and Administration > Identity > User.
  4. Select the proper user you wan to use.
  5. Click Add Public Key, copy the text in oci_api_pub.key file, and then paste it into the PUBLIC KEY field on the Add Public Key window.
  6. Click Add.

Configuring Fabric Connectors

  1. Go to System > Config > Fabric Connectors.
  2. Configure the settings.
  3. Name Enter a name for the Fabric Connector.
    User ID

    To get the User ID:

    1. Log in to OCI.
    2. Go to Governance and Administration > Identity > User.
    3. Click the user you want to use.
    4. Copy the OCID of this user.
    OCI Tenant ID

    To get the OCI tenant ID:

    1. Log in to OCI.
    2. Go to Governance and Administration > Administration > Tenancy Details.
    3. Click the Tenancy you want to use.
    4. Copy the OCID of this Tenancy.
    OCI Compartment ID

    To get the OCI compartment ID:

    1. Log in to OCI.
    2. Go to Governance and Administration > Identity > Compartments.
    3. Click the compartment that your load balancer is located in.
    4. Copy the OCID of this Tenancy.

    Note: If you don't have a compartment, you can leave this option empty.

    OCI LoadBalancer ID

    To get the OCI LoadBalancer ID:

    1. Log in to OCI.
    2. Go to Core Infrastructure > Networking > Load Balancers.
    3. Click the load balancer used for the HA cluster.
    4. Copy the OCID of this load balancer.
