Adding additional storage (optional)

You can add additional storage to FortiManager after launch. Create an EBS storage and attach it to the FortiManager instance on EC2 console, then access FortiManager via the CLI window on the GUI or SSH to run the exec lvm extend command to add storage.

For details, refer to Technical Note: Extending disk space in FortiAnalyzer VM / FortiManager VM.

This example creates and attaches two volumes.

To add additional storage:
  1. In the EC2 console, create a disk volume and attach it to the FortiManager EC2 instance.

  2. Log in to FortiManager using the GUI or SSH. If using the GUI, open the CLI.
  3. Run exec lvm info to check the disk status. Two volumes have been added and are Unused.

  4. Run exec lvm extend. Reboot the system as instructed.

  5. Log in to the FortiManager GUI. Go to the Dashboard and verify you now have enlarged disk space under System Resources > Disk Usage.
