FortiDDoS VM can't set management IP

Hello guys, 

I have a VMware ESXi Server on my office, running FortiDDoS v5.2.0 just for testing and personal lab.

I tried the same method to create management ip interface by typing "config system interface" then "edit mgmt1" then "set ip/netmask" etc.. but when i finish them all, and when i type "end" top save and exit, the system says "the attribute "type" must be set". i know what that means if that on fortigate, means the type of that interface, like vlan or anything else.. but when i typed "?" after i typed "set", there is no type.. and i tried type it manually, still cant.. i search at the fortiddos handbook, i follow the steps, there is no type.. but the system wont save the config unless i define the interface type.. 

So now, i cant access the GUI and dont know the management ip is.. i cant even change the mode to dynamic.. the system only gives static mode... i also done defining the gateway.

 

Can someone help and explain to me? i tried reboot and change version to 4.7.0 but nothing happens, just the same

Thank You

First, the VM you have is not for FortiDDoS.  It is a FortiDDoS Central Manager.  It has almost no value without FortiDDoS appliances.  Because all FortiDDoS mitigation is done in hardware (TP2 and TP3 ASICs) we do not offer a VM version of FortiDDoS.

 

If you want to continue, the CM Installation Guide is here: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortiddos/5.1.0/fortiddos-cm-installation-guide  

Since the CM code is built from the FDD code, some CLI commands are not used.  To set the interface, use:

config system central interface edit port1 set ip <address/mask> set allowaccess {http https ping snmp ssh telnet} end
