I’m planning to setup an environment for the customer, where there are multiple sites and I was thinking that site installation would happen with USB stick, where there is a base configuration and right firmware from where fortigate reboots. Configuration would include fortimanager IP address, so I would only need to authorize remote site fortigate when it is online.
But when I was investigating on the configuration, it is not possible to use fortimanager serialnumber in the configuration file and also when default login password is changed, fortimanager would not be able to authorize the device even it is in the list.
How have you done this kind of setups where there are many site installations happening all the time?
