Preparing a Deployment
The deployment step mentioned in this guide assumes that you have already created a VCN and relevant network resources such as route tables and subnets. You must also configure a Security List so that you can access FortiAnalyzer over the Internet while closing unnecessary ports. See below:
You will at least need to open TCP port 443 to allow incoming access to FortiAnalyzer's management GUI console (or port 22 for SSH if you are familiar with the FortiAnalyzer command line interface) for initial configuration. See FortiAnalyzer open ports.
There are two methods for creating an instance. Select one of the following methods:
- The first method consists of obtaining the deployment image, importing the file into the OCI portal, then launching the FortiAnalyzer-VM instance. See Creating an instance by importing the image file
- The second method consists of pointing to an available FortiAnalyzer-VM image on OCI instead of importing one. See Creating an instance by selecting an OCI partner image
