What’s new in FortiSwitchOS 7.2.1

Release 7.2.1 provides the following new features:

  • VXLAN tunnels are now supported on FS-1024E and FS-T1024E.

  • You can now prevent layer-2 loops between virtual tunnel endpoints by having all FortiSwitch units in a VXLAN tunnel act as a single STP root.

  • You can now use a routed VLAN interface (RVI) as the VXLAN tunnel initiator or VXLAN tunnel destination.

  • You can now configure port-based virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) for an RVI.

  • You can now use the dynamic connectivity association key (CAK) mode for Media Access Control security (MACsec).

  • You can now use the CLI to change the priority of MAC authentication bypass (MAB) authentication and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) 802.1X authentication.

  • Some FortiSwitch models now provide perpetual power over Ethernet (PoE) so that a FortiSwitch unit has uninterrupted power while rebooting.

  • You can now configure an automation stitch that will send data to a uniform resource identifier (URI), such as an IP address or URL, when the trigger occurs.

  • The new Router > Multi-Traceroute page allows you to run multiple path traceroute in the GUI. Results are displayed in a chart and table.

  • The System > FortiLAN Cloud page now reports the dispatch service, access service, status of SSL verification, and the reason for the last restart.

  • The following object identifier (OID) has been added, which refers to a list of FortiSwitch models in the FORTINET-FORTISWITCH-MIB.mib file:

    Name

    OID

    sysObjectID

    .1.3.6.1.4.1.12356.106.5.SYS_MODEL
