This article describes how to perform HQIP test on FortiGate-6k chassis.
There are two variants of FGT-6k chassis at the time of writing, FortiGate-6301F that consists of 6 Fortinet Processor Cards (FPC) and FGT-6501F with 10 FPCs.
Both variants will have Management Board (MBD) that reside on Slot #0.
The HQIP test on FortiGate-6k chassis is similar with regular FortiGate E-series onwards which have HQIP tests built into the FortiOS itself.
This allows users the convenience of performing hardware diagnostics without needing to find the HQIP image and reloading the firmware image.
When logging into FortiGate-6k from the CLI (SSH/Telnet), it enters by default the MBD of the FGT-6k chassis.
Executing the command ' #diagnose hardware test info' will list all the hardware test items supported on the unit.
Sample output for FortiGate-6501F as below:
# execute load-balance slot manage <chassis id.slot>e.g. for chassis 1 slot 5, use the command '# execute load-balance slot manage 1.5'
