Connecting the FortiGate to the SDN Connector

The following are sample CLI commands to establish a connection between the FortiGate and SDN Connector. The username and password are the SDN Connector username and password, which can be modified on the SDN Connector GUI. The default value are admin and fortinet123, respectively.

config system sdn-connector

edit "aci1"

set status enable

set type aci

set server-ip 10.160.38.141

set server-port 5671

set username "admin"

set password

set next

edit "aci2"

set status enable

set type aci

set server-ip 10.160.13.117

set server-port 5671

set username "admin"

set password fortinet123

next

The two entries in the above example are for redundancy. Only the first available is used based on the configured order.

Another way is to access the FortiOS GUI, navigate to System > SDN Connectors, and click Create New. Here you can configure the SDN Connectors into FortiOS.

To debug the SDN Connector on the FortiGate side, use diagnose test application sdncd.

FG100D3G14800142 (global) # diagnose test application sdncd

1, Show sdn connector status

2, Show sdn channels

3, Show dynamic objects table

4, Flush all dynamic addresses

5, Purge all unused dynamic addresses
