Preparing to deploy on OpenStack
You deploy FortiWeb-VM on the OpenStack cloud computing platform using the KVM version of the FortiWeb-VM software.
Downloading the FortiWeb-VM license and software
You can include the license file when you deploy FortiWeb-VM on OpenStack. See Downloading the FortiWeb-VM license & registering with Technical Support.
If you do not include the license file, the instance runs using the built-in trial license and you can upload the license later. For details, see Licensing.
Download the appropriate KVM version of the FortiWeb-VM software and extract the
.zip compressed archive’s contents. The archive's contents include the image file
boot.qcow2 that you upload to OpenStack.
For details, see Downloading the FortiWeb-VM software.
Creating an initial FortiWeb configuration file
Deploying a FortiWeb-VM instance on OpenStack requires a FortiWeb configuration file.
Ensure the file configures:
- port1 to use DHCP, which allows it to acquire an IP address from OpenStack
- A DNS server address for verifying the FortiWeb-VM license
You can include additional configuration that takes affect when you deploy the FortiWeb-VM instance.
The following commands are an example of the configuration file:
config system global
set hostname KVM-CLOUD-INIT
set admintimeout 480
config system interface
set type physical
set allowaccess https ping ssh snmp http telnet
set mode dhcp
config system dns
set secondary 188.8.131.52
