vdom migration

Hi,
I have fortigate 1200D (2x HA), it has only one default root vdom. My plan is to activate the multi vdom function, but I have doubts if it can be done without any interruptions or reboots. In cookbok for v6.2 i found information that states:
Multi VDOM mode can be enabled in the GUI or CLI. Enabling it does not require a reboot, but does log you out of the device. The current configuration is assigned to the root VDOM.
f I recall correctly, that wasnt the case on earlier versions? My question is if i have only one root vdom now, after activation of multi vdom will I loose any kind of configuration? I have read that by activating split task vdom it retains 'some' config but not all, i just want to make 100% that this operation i safe to make.
cheers

Hi,
 
As far I remember, no configuration are lost. The configuration will be displayed under "root" VDOM and from there you will be able to create new VDOM. In my lab I often move from "standalone" to "Multi VDOM" without problem. In fact, take a look in CLI, you'll see all interfaces are related to VDOM "root". 
 
Regards,
 
Philippe

no configuration lost
no interruption of traffic
no reboot
a global and root vdom will be present in cli and GUI for access
 
Also reverting backward is the same. When enable multi-vdom objects that has mvdom option will be present as required.

No configuration lost from root vdom after new vdom created. I have created a new vdom on my FGT100D and it was simple. vdom just splits your hardware into multiple virtual devices by group of ports.
