This section highlights some of the operational changes that administrators should be aware of in 6.0.5.
Configuration changes to FQDN addresses after upgrade
After upgrading both FortiManager and FortiOS from 6.0.4 to 6.0.5, the configuration changes for some of the default FQDN addresses that have been moved under Wildcard FQDN addresses. To avoid a conflict that causes installation failure, rename the affected addresses, for example,
google-play changes to
fqdn_google-play after upgrading to 6.0.5.
- Retrieve the configuration on the affected FortiGate.
- Run a script on the policy package or ADOM database for the affected addresses:
config firewall address
rename "swscan.apple.com" to "fqdn_swscan.apple.com"
rename "update.microsoft.com" to "fqdn_update.microsoft.com"
rename "google-play" to "fqdn_google-play"
rename "autoupdate.opera.com" to "fqdn_autoupdate.opera.com"
Managing FortiGate with VDOMs that use Global Profiles
Because of changes made to FortiOS 6.0.0 and later, FortiGate units with VDOMs enabled that are running FortiOS 6.0.0 and later cannot be successfully added to FortiManager without a workaround. Before adding the FortiGate units to FortiManager, perform the following steps to unset default configurations. After the default configurations are unset, you can successfully add the FortiGate units to FortiManager.
- On the Fortigate for each VDOM, unset the following default configurations by using the CLI:
config wireless-controller utm-profile edit "wifi-default" set comment "Default configuration for offloading WiFi traffic." next edit "g-wifi-default" set comment "Default configuration for offloading WiFi traffic." set ips-sensor "g-wifi-default" set application-list "g-wifi-default" set antivirus-profile "g-wifi-default" set webfilter-profile "g-wifi-default" set firewall-profile-protocol-options "g-wifi-default" set firewall-ssl-ssh-profile "g-wifi-default" next end FGVMULCV30310000 (utm-profile) # ed g-wifi-default FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset ips-sensor FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset application-list FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset antivirus-profile FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset webfilter-profile FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset firewall-profile-protocol-options FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # unset firewall-ssl-ssh-profile FGVMULCV30310000 (g-wifi-default) # sh config wireless-controller utm-profile edit "g-wifi-default" set comment "Default configuration for offloading WiFi traffic." next end
- After the default configurations are unset, you can add the FortiGate unit to FortiManager.
IOC Support on FortiManager
Please note that FortiManager does not support IOC related features even when FortiAnalyzer mode is enabled.
FortiManager 6.0.2 support for FortiOS 6.0.3
FortiManager 6.0.2 treats the
status field of firewall policies as a mandatory field, and it is set to
enable by default. FortiOS 6.0.3 has reverted this change. As a result, FortiManager may report verification failures on installations. The verification report shows that the policy
status field has to be installed with the
"---> generating verification report
(vdom root: firewall policy 1:status)
to be installed: enable
<--- done generating verification report
Reconfigure SD-WAN after Upgrade
The SD-WAN module has been fully redesigned in FortiManager v6.0 to provide granular monitor and control. Upgrading SD-WAN settings from 5.6 to 6.0 is not supported. Please reconfigure SD-WAN after upgraded to v6.0.
FortiGate VM 16/32/UL license support
FortiOS 5.4.4 introduces new VM license types to support additional vCPUs. FortiManager 5.6.0 supports these new licenses with the prefixes of FGVM16, FGVM32, and FGVMUL.
Hyper-V FortiManager-VM running on an AMD CPU
A Hyper-V FMG-VM running on a PC with an AMD CPU may experience a kernel panic. Fortinet recommends running VMs on an Intel-based PC.
VM License (VM-10K-UG) Support
FortiManager 5.4.2 introduces a new VM license (VM-10K-UG) that supports 10,000 devices. It is recommended to upgrade to FortiManager 5.4.2 or later before applying the new license to avoid benign GUI issues.
Recreate Guest List for Guest user group
After upgrading to FortiManager 6.0.3, recreate the guest list for the Guest user group in ADOM Policy Object before installing device settings to FortiGate devices. For more information, see Bug ID 499568 in Resolved Issues.
FortiOS 5.4.0 Support
With the enhancement in password encryption, FortiManager 5.4.2 and later no longer supports FortiOS 5.4.0. Please upgrade FortiGate to 5.4.2 or later.
The following ADOM versions are not affected: 5.0 and 5.2.
SSLv3 on FortiManager-VM64-AWS
Due to known vulnerabilities in the SSLv3 protocol, FortiManager-VM64-AWS only enables TLSv1 by default. All other models enable both TLSv1 and SSLv3. If you wish to disable SSLv3 support, please run:
config system global
set ssl-protocol t1sv1
