When you say you lose "config [ipsec] vpn" settings, do you mean when you turn around & install config back to that FGT?

 

Please state the version of your FortiManager, ADOM on the FortiManager & FortiGate. On that ADOM, have you enabled VPN Manager / Centralized VPN?

If you used the Add Device wizard, it will include the Import Policy step.  Perhaps some objects or interfaces didn't import correctly.  Perhaps some interfaces aren't mapped properly.

At install time, install preview should give some clue.

 

If the VPN configuration being imported was once generated by VPN manager, import could be a problem.

 

In any case, I would highly recommend opening a support ticket to explore the details.  Usually "Add Device" and subsequent install doesn't have this sort of problem.
