Configuring hardware settings

Before powering on your Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient, you must configure the virtual memory, virtual CPU, and virtual disk.

To configure hardware settings:
  1. In the vSphere Client, right-click on the Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient in the left pane, and select Edit Settings to open the Virtual Machine Properties window.
  2. Select Memory from the Hardware list, then adjust the Memory Size as required.

  3. Select CPUs from the Hardware list, then adjust the Number of virtual sockets and Number of cores per socket as required.

  4. Select Hard disk 2, the log disk, from the Hardware list, and configure it as required. Hard disk 1 should not be edited.

    The Micro-FortiGuard Server for FortiClient allows for 12 virtual log disks to be added to a deployed instance. When adding additional hard disks use the following CLI command to extend the LVM logical volume:

    execute lvm start

    execute lvm extend <arg ..>

  5. Click OK to apply your changes.
