Preparing to deploy on OpenStack

Downloading the FortiWeb-VM license and software

You can include the license file when you deploy FortiWeb-VM on OpenStack. See Downloading the FortiWeb-VM license & registering with Technical Support.

If you do not include the license file, the instance runs using the built-in trial license and you can upload the license later. For details, see Licensing.

Download the appropriate KVM version of the FortiWeb-VM software and extract the .zip compressed archive’s contents. The archive's contents include the image file boot.qcow2 that you upload to OpenStack.

For details, see Downloading the FortiWeb-VM software.

Creating an initial FortiWeb configuration file

Deploying a FortiWeb-VM instance on OpenStack requires a FortiWeb configuration file.

Ensure the file configures:

  • port1 to use DHCP, which allows it to acquire an IP address from OpenStack
  • A DNS server address for verifying the FortiWeb-VM license

You can include additional configuration that takes affect when you deploy the FortiWeb-VM instance.

The following commands are an example of the configuration file:

config system global

set hostname KVM-CLOUD-INIT

set admintimeout 480

end

config system interface

edit "port1"

set type physical

set allowaccess https ping ssh snmp http telnet

set mode dhcp

config secondaryip

end

next

end

config system dns

set secondary 114.114.114.114

end
