Due to the vulnerability on FortiNac, we want to upgrade the device, but there is no information for the recommended version. What is the recommended version? Do we need to upgrade the operating system and the GUI separately? Do we need to upgrade the agents on the devices after the upgrade? Do we need to take backup for VM Backup and non-snapshot VM? Can we lose data on major upgrades?
I would say there certainly was a recommended version when we deployed FortiNAC here about 10 months ago. I stood up a VM with 9.2 and was told to start over with 9.1.7 as it was recommended because of stability reasons. So the question to start with is if Fortinet is helping with a new deployment which version would be chosen and why. Then let's go from there.
Thank you in advance for your recommendation and insight.

We upgraded to version 9.2.7. They will be able to do this by following the recommended upgrade steps. There were no problems and the upgrade completed successfully. No need to upgrade on clients or devices. VM and GUI upgrade is sufficient. As a suggestion, if the cpu is low, the virtual time cpu will be increased.
