Updating the virtual hardware

By default, FortiWeb-VM uses VMware virtual hardware version 5. If you need to update your FortiWeb-VM’s virtual hardware, shut down FortiWeb-VM before doing so.

For example, if you have a VMware vSphere ESXi 5.1 environment that supports virtual hardware version 9, and you want to provide version 9 feature support such as backups to FortiWeb-VM, you would update the virtual hardware.

  2. execute shutdown

  3. In VMware vCenter, right-click the VM and select the option to upgrade the virtual hardware.
