we have fortigates with vdom enabled, but no interfaces in the root/global vdom. What we have discovered is ntp does not sync. When i try and source the NTP from any of the fortigates IP addresses i get the error: "node_check_object fail! for source-ip"
I suspect the issue is that without any interface sin the root vdom, it has no ability to get NTP. Is there any workaround for this? (We do use fortimanager can we grab NTP sync from that since fortimanager communication is working?)
You must have an interface in the mgmt vdom(root by default) You can change the management vdom in the vdom settings to a different vdom, that would fix it. Then source it form the interface IP of your choice.
