Server readiness checklist for installation

Use the following checklist to prepare your server for installation.

Checklist

Readiness factor

 

Temporarily disable security applications. You must temporarily disable any antivirus (AV) software on the target server before you install FortiClient EMS. Installation may be slow or disrupted while these programs are active. A server may be vulnerable to attack when you uninstall or disable security applications.

 

Consider the date and time settings you apply to your server. If managing Chromebooks, it is recommended to sync the time to the Google server time.

 

Confirm required services and ports are enabled and available for use by FortiClient EMS.

 

Ensure no conflict exists with port 443 for the Apache service to function properly.

 

Ensure no conflict exists with ports 8013 and 8443 for the EMS service to function properly.
