Fortigate Migration - Vdoms & Vdoms Links

Hi everyone!
I have been migrating the configuration from a FortiGate with FortiOS 5.0 to a new FortiGate with FortiOS 7.0. All the rules and interfaces were transferred successfully, but the VDOMs and VDOMs Links were not transferred.
Does anyone know why this happens, or do they know a way to migrate them?

    What do you mean by migrate? Did you follow the recommended upgrade path from fortios 5.x to 7.x

    Yes, I do.
    By migrating, I mean downloading the backup files from the old fortiGate and the new one. Then copy the path with the information of the new one and paste it in the backups of the old one. Then I uploaded those files to the new FortiGate, but the only thing that didn't transfer were the VDOMs.

    You really can't make a backup from a different version fortios and just import it in. It has to deal with the 1st 2-3 lines of the backup and many items within the fortios major version might change
     
    e.g
    #config-version=FGT60F-7.0.1-FW-build0157-210714:opmode=0:vdom=0:user=kfelix
    #conf_file_ver=576736798489189
    #buildno=0157
     
    If your config is not complex and the new fortigate is the same model, just copy out the interface, address, custom-services, vpn-settings, gobal settings, etc....... and paste it in to the new cfg and look things over.
     
    In your case you might want to go back and extract the vdom settings to include policies and extract that information and add it to the new fortios version.

    When I did the process the first time I did what you mention of the 3 lines. Even so, I will do the transfer process again and verify the cfg. If I do it and the VDOMs are reflected, I'll write you back.
    Thanks, in advance.
