This article describes how to schedule auto updates from the GUI and CLI.

Solution
From the GUI.

Go to System -> FortiGuard -> AntiVirus & IPS Updates -and under 'Scheduled Updates' there are 3 options:

1) 'Every' and 'Hours': With a minimum of one hour.




2) 'Daily' and 'AM or PM': to set a specify hour during the day (however, this is not possible to control the exact time within that hour).


3) 'Weekly', 'Sunday to Saturday' and 'AM or PM': To specify a day of the week and a specify hour (however, this is not possible to control the exact time within that hour).



From the CLI.

Use the following command:
# config system  autoupdate schedule
hh: 1-23
mm: 0-59
Important:
': 60'                                  <----- Means the schedule can start randomly within 1 hour.
': 240'                               <----- Means the schedule can start randomly within 4 hours.
