Description
This article explains how to configure FortiGate to use FortiManager as local FDS server.
FortiManager can be operated as a local FDS server when it is in a closed network with no Internet connectivity.

Solution
This is only CLI configuration:
# config global                                          <---- If VDOM is enabled, run this command.
# config system central-management
    set include-default-servers disable                  <----- Disable it.
end
This warning message will appear:
Warning: The server-list does not contain a server for URL ratings.
Add a server entry or enable 'include-default-servers'.


# config system central-management
# config server-list

    edit 1
        set server-type update
        set addr-type ipv4
        set server-address x.x.x.x                        <----- The FortiManager IP.
    next
# end
