Configure a custom VM

Custom VM modification is supported on the appliance-based and private cloud. It is not supported on cloud deployments such as FortiSandbox on AWS and Azure and FortiSandbox Cloud. Admins must have "Read Write" privileges to modify a custom VM.

To modify a custom VM:
  1. Go to Scan Policy and Object > VM Settings.
  2. Under Customized VMs, ensure the Clone # is zero.

  3. Click the Customize VM icon .
  4. Configure the VM settings that will be used for the VNC session only. FortiSandbox uses pre-defined VM resources for the Dynamic Scan.

    VM NameThe name cannot exceed 15 characters. Only letters and numbers are supported.
    CPU Cores

    Default is 1.

    Maximum of two cores are supported. Once VNC terminates the CPU value reverts to default.

    Memory

    Default is 1024.

    Maximum of 2048 MB memory is supported. Once VNC terminates the Memory value reverts to default.

  5. Click Start. The system starts an instance of the VM type. This may take some time to complete.

  6. Click Mount an ISO to install the software. Only ISO format is supported.

    The mounted ISO will be connected as CD drive. Alternatively, you can transfer files via file sharing site over the Internet. YOu should only visit a trusted site to avoid any unexpected changes on your VM.
