Hi,

Long story short, no.

When you enable/FGFM administrative access on a interface of a VDOM on the FGT and add it into FMG, all the VDOMs are imported also.

Then you can move them to separate ADOMs if needed.

additional note:

- you can't add 1 vdom only, all vdoms in FortiGate will be added to Fortimanager

- each vdom uses a license, so 1 FGT with 2 vdoms => 2 licenses in Fortimanager

- if you need to move each vdom to a separate ADOM in Fortimanager, you need to change the ADOM mode to advanced mode -> System Settings -> Advanced -> Misc Settings -> ADOM Mode change it to Advanced

The steps are the same, does not matter if the root vdom in another FGT is not the mgmt vdom.
