CLI Reference

ADOMs overview

FortiManager can manage a large number of Fortinet devices. ADOMs enable administrators to manage only those devices that are specific to their geographic location or business division. This also includes FortiGate units with multiple configured VDOMs.

If ADOMs are enabled, each administrator account is tied to an administrative domain. When a particular administrator logs in, they see only those devices or VDOMs that have been enabled for their account. The one exception is the admin administrator account which can see and maintain all administrative domains and the devices within those domains.

Administrative domains are not enabled by default, and enabling and configuring the domains can only be performed by the admin administrator. For more information, see Configuring ADOMs.

The default and maximum number of administrative domains you can add depends on the FortiManager system model. The table below outlines these limits.
