Recently I need to build a second lab, the same as the existing lab.
I am thinking if I can just run a backup/restore to copy the configuration file to the new Fortigate as soon as they are the same model.
What I concern is about the license, serial number, etc...
Will the restore erase all this information? If yes, will I lose the support contract?
Same question if I restore the Full-configuration file.
restore will not erase the serial.
Licenses are bound to the serial so the will stay where they are.
The devices in the new lab will need their own licenses (or you can transfer them over additionally).
