Deploying a FortiADC-VM instance in an OpenStack environment

Deploying a FortiADC-VM instance in an OpenStack environment

1. Creating boot and log images

In Project > Compute > Images, use the Image File options to navigate to Image Details and select the boot.qcow2 and data.qcow2 file you extracted from the FortiADC-VM KVM software package. For Format, select QCOW2-QEMU Emulator.

2. Creating Volume

To create the volume FortiADC-VM uses for its boot and log disk, navigate to Project > Volumes > Volumes. This step may take a while.

3. Creating Flavor

To specify the size of the instance, go to the OpenStack dashboard, navigate to Admin > Compute > Flavors and click Create Flavor. Complete the flavor settings.

4. Creating Network

Navigate to Project > Network > Networks. In the network creation wizard, complete the network and subnet settings.to create Network, 10 Subnets and Ports.

Create 'subnet1' when creating Network.

Click on the created network and create 9 more subnets.

Click Ports tab and then create 10 ports in different subnets for FortiADC interfaces.

Configure Security Group in Project > Network > Security Groups to allow all.

To the router, add subnets which need to be forwarded to the public network in Project > Network > Routers.

Allocate Floating IP in Project > Network > Floating IPs.

5. Creating Instance

Create Instance in Project > Compute > Instances.

Select created boot disk in Volume.

Select created flavor.

Do not select Networks. Add created Network Ports instead.

Configure Security Groups and then click "Launch Instance".

Because only boot disk can be configured during instance creation, attach data disk is needed for the FortiADC instance.

Assign Floating IP 172.24.4.x in public network to Instance.

The associated port needs to be in the subnet whose gateway was added in Router in the previous step.

6. Connect to console

Remember to reboot FortiADC Instance after attaching data volume.
