See the Fortinet Document Library for Managed FortiSwitch documentation.

NOTE: FortiLink is not supported in transparent mode.

The maximum number of supported FortiSwitch units depends on the FortiGate model:

FortiGate Model Range Number of FortiSwitch Units Supported
FortiGate 40F, 91E, FortiGate-VM01 8
FortiGate 60F, 6xE, 80F, 8xE, 90E 16
FortiGate 100D, FortiGate-VM02 24
FortiGate 100E, 100EF, 100F, 101E, 140E, 140E-POE 32
FortiGate 200E, 201E 64
FortiGate 300D to 500D 48
FortiGate 300E to 500E 72
FortiGate 600D to 900D and FortiGate-VM04 64
FortiGate 600E to 900E 96
FortiGate 1000D to 15xxD 128
FortiGate 1100E to 25xxE 196
FortiGate-3xxx and up and FortiGate-VM08 and up 300

What’s new in FortiOS 7.0.1

The following list contains new managed FortiSwitch features added in FortiOS 7.0.1.

  • You can now use LAN segments when configuring FortiSwitch NAC settings to prevent hosts from having to renew IP addresses when moving to another VLAN.
  • Use the new diagnose switch-controller switch-info port-properties [<FortiSwitch_serial_number>] [<port_name>] command to check the port properties of managed FortiSwitch units.
  • You can now configure in FortiOS which DHCP servers that DHCP snooping includes in the server access list. These servers on the list are allowed to respond to DHCP requests.
  • You can now change the order in which FortiSwitch units are displayed in the Topology view.
  • You can now configure a dynamic firewall address for devices and use it in a NAC policy. When a device matches the NAC policy, the MAC address for that device is automatically assigned to the dynamic firewall address, which can be used in firewall policies to control traffic from/to these devices.
  • Three SNMP OIDs have been added to the FortiOS enterprise MIB 2 tables in FortiOS 7.0.1. They report the FortiSwitch port status and FortiSwitch CPU and memory statistics.
