Thread: Dynamic Objects

    Dynamic Objects

    Please use Dynamic objects if you manage several different organizations FortiGates with your Manager. It will save you a lot of hassle and will enable you to use the same policy across the board and the IP's etc change appropriately.

    I'm considering getting a FortiManager for my environment, currently have 11 FGTS in production 4 of which are 1500D clusters.. Trying to keep things like SSL-DPI Exceptions in Sync across the board is PAINFUL! However, I've heard that the FTMGR has a pretty steep learning curve that comes with it, much like the FAZ when needing reports.

    Buy one, set it up in a lab with 2-4 fortigates. Spend all day pushing different configs or changes to it. It isn't intuitive but it is.....I know that sounds weird. It doesn't make sense until you dive in really.

    I've a an old FTMGR 1000C sitting here that I just updated to 5.2.9 and I'm thinking about syncing to my home/Prod 90D. You're right, It's totally not intuitive at all and I'm quite freaked out about it. Perhaps i will wait until I get some other devices hooked into it and leave my Prod/90D alone for now.

    Yeah, get a few test Gates and run them off of it and play away

    Ok, next week I will be bringing home 3-4 FWF-40c's and playing with the FMGR.

    How did your testing go? The FortiManager is super powerful but definitely able to nuke a device or deployment of devices REALLY quick if you aren't careful!
