Before using the FortiDeceptor VM, you must enter the license file that you downloaded from the Customer Service & Support portal upon registration.
To upload the license file:
- Log into the FortiDeceptor VM GUI, and find the System Information widget on the dashboard.
- In the VM License field, select
Upload License. The VM License Upload page opens.
- Select Browse, locate the VM license file (.
lic) on your computer, then select OK to upload the license file.
- Refresh your browser and log back into the FortiDeceptor VM(username admin, no password).
The VM registration status appears as valid in the System Information widget once the license has been validated.
A reboot message will be shown, then the FortiDeceptor VM system will reboot and load the license file.
If the IP address in the license file and the IP address configured in the FortiDeceptor VM do not match, you will receive an error message when you log back into the VM.
