Unable to change Operation Mode to Local Management



We have ordered 6 new FortiSwitch 448D-FPOE switches and would love to use them with Fortigate 400D using FortiLink feature.

I have connected single switch (Port52 SFP) to FortiGate unite (Port1 SFP). Enabled Switch controller on Fortigate.

After no connection was made through SFP (problem that is beeing resolved by support) I've switched manually Management Mode to Fortigate Remote Management. Since then I am unable to revert it back to Local Management. I have tried even with CLI, with configuration restore, but switch always reboots to FortiGate Remote Management mode.


Firmware Version: v3.6.2,build0382,170829 (GA)


Any expert that could shed a light on this situation?
