Connecting to the FortiGate-VM

  1. Power on the VM:
    1. In the Nutanix management console, go to Explore > VMs.
    2. Click the newly created FortiGate-VM.
    3. By default, the FortiGate-VM is shutdown after initial creation. Click More > Power On.
  2. Go to the Console tab to ensure that the VM boots up successfully.
  3. Once boot-up is complete, the console prompts for login credentials. Log into the FortiGate, using the username admin and no password.
  4. After a few minutes, refresh the browser. An IP address should have been assigned to the FortiGate. You will see that the IP Addresses field is now populated.
  5. Access the FortiGate in your browser.
  6. Log into the FortiGate-VM with the username admin and no password.
  7. After logging in successfully, upload your license (.lic) file to activate the FortiGate-VM. The FortiGate-VM automatically restarts. After it restarts, wait about 30 minutes until the license is fully registered at Fortinet, then log in again.
  8. After you log in, you see the FortiGate dashboard. Go to Network > Interfaces to check the network interface setting. The assigned IP address is displayed and configurable.
