FortiManager autodiscovery with DHCP options on FortiGate

Hello guys.

So I saw there's possibility of deploying ZTP with Fortigate and Fortimanager. It's described here.


FortiOS DHCP options and auto DNS hostname for FortiManager details

A diagnose command can be used to show the FortiManager autodiscovery status for the secure sending of FortiManager details to FortiGate.

FortiGate is occasionally required in large deployments where a Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) of the unit is required.

Rather than using the CLI Console to configure system settings one at a time, ZTP can help to reduce errors, save time in automated device configuration, and enhance scalability.

This functionality is designed to work even in a closed network with no Internet access.


Sounds great, but I wasn't able to found information about what DHCP options you actually have to use to get this working.

Have anybody tried to implement this at all?

same here.


DHCP or DNS ZTP would be great to use.

If I find the time, I am gonna sniff if there is a dns name it tries to find...

Hope this helps

DHCP Option 240 = FortiManager IP

DHCP Option 241 = FortiManager Hostname
