Unable to connect to Fortimanager through my Management VDOM

We have a cluster of 3 firewalls A,B,C;A being the Master one


We have 3 VDOM in each

EXTERNAL-managing External traffic

INTERNAL-Managing Internal Traffic

MGMT VDOM -Management VDOM-Managing only Management traffic


We have a scenario where I don't want my Management VDOM to have Internet Access and hence I don't want to create an Intervdom link to provide Internet access to the same.

What would be the possible solutions to such a scenario and would the below article will help me in getting my problem resolved.

Do you need to go through the internet to reach you FortiManager ? Isn't it located on your local network ?


The link will not help you because it deals with dedicated management interfaces for each cluster member which is different from your scenario.

Access to FortiManager should always be done through a shared interface and not a dedicated interface.
