Do you know if it's possible to use the "cfg-save revert" command on a Fortigate in such a way that the firewall WON'T reboot when the timer period expires? i.e. are there any other config settings which can be changed so that the config will just revert without rebooting the device? (I'm using a HA pair of 600E firewalls running 6.4.7). Thanks
I am not aware of any way to revert the changes without rebooting. The unit assumes there is an issue with the config, so it just restores the last known good configuration, and the only way to restore an entire configuration is through a reboot.
Thanks for your reply. I suspected that was the case, although it's a bit annoying as I CAN revert my Juniper SRX and even my Cisco switches without a reboot. (also strangely enough I can do the same with my Fortigate 40F).
Yes the 40F is also running 6.4.7. The change I made was to add a static route. The 600E firewalls though are running as an HA pair and unlike the 40F have multiple VDOMs. Perhaps that's why a reboot is necessary?
