Configuring Endpoint Control

Hi,
Can I configure EMS via my fortigate (300D) or do I need to install the EMS server software?  I am trying to avoid installing the server software.
 
Thanks

Up to FortiOS 6.2 you could register Forticlients to the Fortigate and create some basic profiles on the Fortigate to be pushed to the PCs, like compliance check, av/vuln scan. But starting with 6.2 you cannot - only via EMS server.
If you have older than 6.2 version, see in the FortiOS reference commands  https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/6.0.0/cli-reference/362768/endpoint-control (configurable in CLI only anyway):
 
config endpoint-control settings
config endpoint-control profile

But do I still need to install the EMS server software or can I configure and register the clients using the fortigate?  This is what I am trying to understand.

IF you have FortiOS 6.0.x you don't need EMS and you can register Forticlients on PC stations directly with Fortigate, up to 10 Forticlients without buying additional licenses.
