Use this command to manually control the synchronization of configuration files and FortiGuard service-related packages from the active HA appliance to the standby appliance.
Typically, most HA synchronization happens automatically, whenever changes are made. However, in some cases, you may want to use this command to manually initiate full or partial HA synchronization, including to
- Delay synchronization to a more convenient time if you are planning to make large batch changes, and therefore delayed synchronization is preferable for network performance reasons
- Manually force synchronization of files that are not automatically synchronized
- Trigger automatic synchronization if it has been interrupted due to HA link failure, daemon crashes, etc.
To use this command, your administrator account’s access control profile must have either

sysgrp area. For details, see Permissions.
Select which part of the configuration and/or FortiGuard service-related packages to synchronize.
