Re: Restoring backup to another fortigate
Yes you can.
0- you can manage the replacement unit by connecting to 192.168.199 via any (internal) port
1- make sure the replacement unit runs the same firmware; if not, upgrade
2- in CLI, run "exec factoryreset", just to make sure.
3- restore your old config
You will probably have to change this setting in CLI:
conf sys global
set alias "<FG2H...>"
as this is the serial number of the FGT.
4- go to the Customer Service portal, log in, "Assets", "manage", in the left menu click "RMA". Now enter the serial number of the new unit. Your associated contracts will be reassigned to the new unit.
5- now you can run "exec update-now" in the CLI. Check later that the AV signatures have been updated.
