Deploying FortiWeb Manager-VM from AMI

  1. Go to EC2 service, then click ELASTIC BLOCK STORE > Snapshots. Select the snapshot you just imported, then click Actions > Create Image.
  2. Go to IMAGES > AMIs, select the image you created in step 1, then click Launch.
  3. Choose an instance type with at least 2 vCPUs and 4GB memory. Click Next: Configure Instance Details.
  4. Configure instance details.
    • For Network, select the VPC that you created in the previous step.
    • For Subnet, select the subnet that you created in the previous step.
    • Enable Auto-assign Public IP.

    Leave the other options at their default settings for now. Click Next: Add Storage.

  5. Configure instance storage as shown in the screenshot. The size of the root volume should be at least 4 GB, and the EBS volume at least 50 GB.

  6. Configure Instance Tags.
    It is recommended to create a Name tag, so that you can search this VM in the VM list using its name. Configure the Key and Value as shown below.
  7. Configure Security groups
    Select the security group you have created in Creating Security Group. Click Review and Launch.
  8. Configure Key Pair.
    In this example, we choose proceed without a key pair so we need to use the default FortiWeb Manager user name and password to SSH into to the instance. You can also create a new key pair for easier access to the instance. For more information on key pair, see Amazon EC2 Key Pairs.
  9. Click Launch Instance to begin the provisioning.
  10. Once the instance has finished provisioning and powering up, check the following items.
    1. Public IP/DNS assigned. Take note of the instance ID and public IP address. You will use these items in later steps.
    2. Confirm the correct security group is assigned.
