The Fabric Devices page displays FortiGates that EMS is connected to via the Security Fabric. You must authorize a connection request from a FortiGate to allow Fabric connection between EMS and the FortiGate.
To configure a Fabric connection between EMS and a FortiGate:
This process involves some actions that the FortiOS administrator takes, and other actions that the EMS administrator takes.
- (FortiOS administrator) Configure EMS in Security Fabric > Settings > FortiClient Endpoint Management System (EMS) in FortiOS.
- (FortiOS administrator) Confirm the EMS serial number that FortiOS obtains.
- (EMS administrator) Log in to EMS. EMS prompts you to authorize or deny Fabric Connector access from that FortiGate. The prompt includes the FortiGate hostname, serial number, and IP address. Authorize the connection to establish the Fabric connection between EMS and the FortiGate.
