Description
This article describes how to export meta objects from an online FMG and import them from GUI and CLI because meta objects have not yet been located in the Support site.

Scope
For version 6.4.3 and higher.

Solution
1) Export meta objects using fds-export cli command:

# execute fmupdate {ftp | tftp} fds-export <objid> <remote_file> <ip> <remote_path> <user> <password>

Example:

# exec fmupdate ftp fds-export 0600200NIDS02504 ipsmetadata 10.10.200.21 . admin qwe123



 
 
2) Import meta objects from CLI command
# execute fmupdate {ftp | scp | tftp} import <type> <remote_file> <ip> <port> <remote_path> <user> <password>
Example.
# exec fmupdate ftp import package ipsmetadata 10.10.200.21 . admin qwe123
3) Export meta objects from GUI.
Go to FortiGuard -> Package Management -> Receive Status, search meta objects, then select the meta objects and run the EXPORT via the right button.
 
 

 
 
 
Check the checksum of the exported Meta objects.
Wrong checksum will cause import failed

4) Import meta objects from GUI.
Go to FortiGuard -> Settings -> FortiGuard Server and Service Settings.
Upload Meta objects file.
