Replace managed device

When you need to replace a standalone FortiGate device or a cluster member, the best practice is to add the new device as a new member so as to preserve existing logs. Consider adding the old and new FortiGate devices into a group for reporting purposes.

For information on replacing FortiGate units in a high-availability pair, see the cookbook recipe Replacing FortiGate HA Pairs with Logging Enabled.
