Configuring FortiAnalyzer to accept FortiClients' logs
This article covers a basic setup steps allowing FortiAnalyzer (FAZ) to accept FortiClients (FCT) logs.
FAZ collects FCT logs into FortiClient ADOM. They logs are stored under the EMS's serial number managing the FortiClients.
And in order to do so the EMS needs to be registered at the FAZ.
