Deploying two FortiGate-VMs into the configured networks

From the OpenStack command line, enter the following commands to deploy two FortiGate-VM instances (fgt-vm-1 and fgt-vm-2). These commands use the standard license files you receive when you register your FortiGate-VMs (in this example, FGVM080000103268.lic and FGVM080000109643.lic).

$ openstack server create --flavor m1.fortigate --image fgtb1486 --user-data /home/stack/openstack/cloud-init/user_data --config-drive=true --file license=/home/stack/FG-licenses/FGVM080000103268.lic --security-group web --nic net-id=private01 --nic net-id=network-r --nic net-id=network-l --nic net-id=ha-sync fgt-vm-1
