I didn't see anything specific to this question answered.
If you purchase a used fortigate and are unable to transfer ownership (such as the case with a decommissioned firewall) is it 'safe' to use?
I ask because i have two 60D firewalls for personal use, after connecting the firewalls to the internet they show as registered under FortiCare. I saw other posts saying to open a ticket with Fortinet to have it transferred but these units cannot have a ticket open because they've been deemed decommissioned.
I don't really care so much about them being transferred to me, i just want to ensure that with them being registered to someone else that there's not a back door in through FortiCloud or a way to pull/view my configs.
Is there a way to turn off all contact to FortiNet/FortiCloud services?
I saw the command that was introduced in I think 6.2 but these are on 5.6.4. I think firmware was only supported up til 6.0 anyways for the 60D.
