FortiManager: Firmware Template - FortiGuard Image

Hi,

 

I'm running a FortiManager in v7.0.2, we have preconfigured "Firmware Templates" to centrally schedule Firmware Upgrades on the managed devices.

 

Now that the new FortiOS 6.4.8 has been released, we would like to upgrade to this version.
Unfortunately, I have no way to select this FortiGuard image in my corresponding firmware template.


My databases on the Manager look current.

 

Do you have any tip for me?

 

Thanks!

Hi be_fg

 

You can restart the fwmanager using the command "diagnose fwmanager service-restart". You can also check the official firmware image list using the command "diagnose fwmanager official-imagelist". 

 

However, it appear to be the same with my lab unit, let me try to check internally with our FortiGuard team and get back to you soon. Thanks.

Hi be_fg

 

Normally the firmware available for FMG via FortiGuard will be a couple of days late after the official release. So you might want to wait for a couple of days first. For workaround, you can try to download the firmware image and manually upload into FMG.

Hi ESCHAN,

 

thanks for your reply - so I'll wait some more days.

Just checked the Status within my FortiManager and still got only the 6.4.7 Release available.

Until now, I still got only v6.4.7 available.
Is there any command with which I can trigger an FortiGuard Update on my FortiManager?
I dont want to use local images, so the devices should download the firmware directly from FortiGuard Servers.

 

Thanks.

Hi ESCHAN,

 

"diagnose fwmanager service-restart" fixed it for me, now I'm able to use the 6.4.8 image from FortiGuard-Servers.

 

Thanks for your help.
