Issue occur when link fortigate to fortimanager

Hi,

 

I had saw a quite a lot on the guide to solve. But I had tried on the method but it is still failed.

 

I can manually add the device and I can authorize the unit, both method can work.

But we try manually add, once added and it will be stuck at the section and failed (see image below).

Need some advice on it.

 

Below is the issue.

FGT201F is on 6.4.9 (upgrade from 6.4.4)

FMGR is on 6.4.9

FGT is not an internet-facing unit.

 

Status: reloadconffail|datasrc invalid. object: dnsfilter profile ftgd-dns filters.24:category. detail: 96. solution: datasrc invalid

Please review this document as it relates to your issue most likely.

https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiManager/Technical-Note-FortiManager-error-datasrc-invalid-obj...

 

The doc references webfilter profile but in your case it is DNS filter profile. Look for category 96 on your FortiGate config and see if you can remove it.

Cheers,
Graham

Hi Graham,

 

This is the guide I had to follow previously.

 

delete the authorise unit in the fmgr.

remove the necessary and re-add into fgt via the CLI.

And re-add it in manually.

 

But the result is still the same. It will still stuck at the same.  with the same error status.

is it possible due to the firmware 6.4.9? Should I downgrade FGT to 6.4.8?

thank you

Can you clarify exactly what you removed from the FGT config? Was it DNS filter profile ID 24 referencing category 96?

Cheers,
Graham

hm I ran in to this some times too. Still the FGT had been added to FMG though and I could retrieve the config from it and reimport the Policy package in FMG Devicemanager. It worked fine from them on.
