Optional: Creating a custom Windows 10 VM

FortiSandbox Azure supports custom VMs. You can provide a VHD image of a custom VM and the FortiSandbox firmware can load the VM image and use it for sample analysis.

For information on setting up a custom VM on Azure, see the custom VM image section in the FortiSandbox Administration Guide to do the following:

  • Create a custom VHD image using virtualization software such as VirtualBox.
  • Prepare the OS installation package.
  • Install software and components on the custom VM image.
  • Set up the VM image environment.

After you have created a custom Windows 10 VM, install and apply the custom VM in FortiSandbox.

To install the custom VM:
  1. Put the VM image's VHD file onto a server that supports the FTP or SCP protocol.
  2. Install using the command azure-vm-customized.
  3. After the VM is installed, enable it by setting its clone number to be higher than 0 in the VM Image page and associate file types in the Scan Profile page to scan files.
  4. In a new FSA CLI window, check the VM clone initialization using the diagnose-debug vminit command.
