Does anyone know if older FAPs do not work anymore? Upgrade of FWF60E went fine but the FAP24D and FAP321C, both v6.0-build0044 did not connect, also after a reboot of the access points.

It is possible to create profiles for these access points but without getting a connection to the FWF60E.

Yes, this is a known behaviour documented in the FortiOS 7.0.0 Release note here. You may need to upgrade your FAP firmware so it can support the new strong crypto cipher requirement, or a work around is to disable strong crypto on the FortiGate as suggested abovee. You can see full details here.

I put it on my home 60E. First impressions so far- it works. No deal breaker crashes yet. A bunch of quality of life updates like more color schemes and snappier UI are helpful. The migration of interfaces to zones and related features is promising and should help reduce the need to do lots of find/replace inside a config file. I mainly wanted to try zero trust networking to see if they can live up to the hype. So far I'm severely disappointed. There is next to no documentation available on that feature and it's not obvious how exactly to set it up. The documentation available for 7.x has a bunch of typos.

Hi there, sorry for the delay in the documentation on ZTNA but it's available now here.

Note that you will also need to setup EMS and FortiClient in order to fully utilize the feature.

Hi,

It's been two months since the release of FortiOS 7.0 and it's still missing for the 80/81F box. Does anyone have any info when it will be available? TAC could not give me any answer ..

 

Thanks.

If you are using FortiManager don't consider V7.0.

80F/81F will be released in 7.0.1 GA.

I didn't mention the ETA of 7.0.1 was because the date might be changed, anyway it's planned around Jun 24 for now.
