FortiAuthenticator-VM works in evaluation mode until it is licensed. In evaluation mode, only a limited number of users can be configured on the system. To expand this capability, a stackable license can be applied to the system to increase both the user count, and all other metrics associated with the user count.
When a license is purchased, a registration code is provided. Go to support.fortinet.com and register your device by entering the registration code. You are asked for the IP address of your FortiAuthenticator device, and are then provided with a license key.
Ensure that the IP address specified while registering your unit is configured on one of the device’s network interfaces, then upload the license key to your FortiAuthenticator-VM.
The License Information widget shows the current state of the device license. See License information widget.
- Register your device at the Fortinet Support website.
- Ensure that one of your device’s network interfaces is configured to the IP address specified during registration.
- Go to System > Administration > Licensing.
- Select Choose File and locate the license file you received from Fortinet.
- Select OK.
