Downloading the FortiWeb-VM software

To download your FortiWeb-VM software
  1. On the main page of the Fortinet Technical Support website, under Download, click Firmware Images.
  2. Click the FortiWeb link and navigate to the version that you want to download.
  3. Download the appropriate .zip file.

    You use this file for new virtual appliance (VM) installations. It contains a deployable virtual machine package. (.out image files are for upgrades of existing installations only, and cannot be used for a new installation.)

    Files for FortiWeb-VM have a FWB_VM file name prefix. Other prefixes indicate that the file is for hardware versions of FortiWeb such as FortiWeb 4000D. These hardware versions are not used with FortiWeb-VM.

     

    If you have a library of virtual machine images stored on a CIFS or NFS share, download and unzip the folder there instead of on your management computer. When deploying the VM, you can also use a CIFS or NFS network share as the storage repository instead of a vDisk stored locally, on the hypervisor’s disk.
  4. Extract the .zip compressed archive’s contents to a folder.
  5. Continue by deploying the virtual appliance package using the appropriate deployment instructions in this guide.

    For example, see Deploying FortiWeb-VM on VMware vSphere.
