I wanted to test 7.2.4 VM on ESXI.
For my current and wanted setup, i wanted to add a NIC using PCIE passthrough of ESXI to the VM i downloaded, because i wanted to use a VLAN on my Nic so that i can get PPPOE. I Have my SFP in that NIC. I Got my PPPOE config to work using the CLI, so i currently can ping fortiguard servers or any other outside destinations using the execute ping command.
When i go execute vm-licenses
I get : 60 - Failed to request forticare license. Failed to download VM license.
But when i am using Diagnose hardware sysinfo vm full
Valid : 0
Code : 202,
Status : 3
If i do it from the GUI i get a message bottom right which says : "Licence invalid product model"
My guess is because i kind of tempered with the VM adding a passed through nic but i hoped i was wrong, confirmed, or that it would be made possible.
My current number of physical interfaces is 2, i do respect the CPU and ram limitation (even tried lowering the ram to 1536 in case pcie did something). and i have 1 more logical interface which is my vlan, i'm unsure if it counts though, and i've let the default ssl.root and other .root interfaces because i doubt they'd count when activating..
Support directed me to the community forum because they wont support evaluations even though i'm a partner, so i guess no one is going to tell me : so yeah i've found your request in fg servers for activation and its bogus because of "...".
If anyone can help... i'd be pretty happy, next step i'd rather not take is bridge my isp's router and forget about passing through the NIC but that would require me to do some re-wiring and i'm happy not using their router at all..
