Fortigate configuration prior to onboarding

Hi team,

 

Before onboarding to FortiManager, do we need to do any configuration in Fortigate Firewall to facilitate the device communication?

Hello

On the FG interface that will connect to FMG, enable https, ssh and FMG-access.

As far as I remember it is recommended to manage the FG (from FMG) from an interface other than mgmt interface. I guess because sometimes in HA mode mgmt interface is configured as dedicate interface.

I don't think you need https access on the FGT.

Also I'd recommend to make sure that FMG-access is enabled only on one interface. I had issues when there was more then one interface with FMG-access enabled.
