Missing "Security Profiles" menu in Fortigate VM 7.014 for ESXi

Hi Everyone,

I'm running Fortigate VM 7.0.14 for ESXi with 15dd trial license, the webui is lacking the "Security Profiles" item: is this due to the trial license or should I enable it from anywhere?

Thanks

Hello @giusepbe ,

 

I think you deployed the wrong image.  If the file name starts with FFW, this is a FortiFirewall image. This image is a subscription-based image. 

 

Can you re-deploy with the FGT image?

With 15d eval license you don't have any FortiGuard service, i.e.: signature update (AV, IPS), web rating, ISDB updates and so.

As you may know these are crucial for NGFW.

Hi

I have a 15d trial VM 7.0.14 for KVM and the security profiles are all here.

Hello @giusepbe ,

 

Maybe all features configured are disabled in the Feature visibility menu. Can you check this menu? 

 

System -> Feature Visibility

 

Also, can you try with another browser?

Hi,

thank you for your feedback. All the features are enabled in "Feature Visibility", as you can see from the screenshot below.

One important correction I have to report is that the hypervisor is VMWare Workstation 17, not ESXi as previously specified.

The browser is Chrome  v.123, I also tried a different browser with same result.

Thanks

@ozkanaltasis right, your screenshot shows FortiFirewall, not FortiGate.

Thank you

you are absolutely right, for some reasons I got confused and installed the wrong image.

I installed the FGT* one and Security Profiles are all visible now, although I see IPS, AV nd WEB are not licensed: is it because the evaluation license does not support them?

OK the IPS's signatures updates are not supported, but is the IPS engine working with the installed set?
