cconfig system central-management set fmg


Dear People,


there was 2 ways to register a Fortigate to Fortimanager.


At least you use the following string to activate the sync with Fortimanager.


To use the registration password, enter the following:

execute central-mgmt register-device <fmg-serial-no><fmg-registerpassword><fgtusrname><fgt-password>


Can somebody explain what is and where to get or set it:




Thanx in advance!

Where did you get the syntax of the command? We don't use password but preshare, which is currently not supported by FMG (at least with 6.4). So just put a dummy preshare as "preshare" like below:
execute central-mgmt register-device <fmg-serial-no> preshare




Dear Toshi,

I found a tehnical Tip on this sites first. I searcht with them in web and I found this link:

If test to register the device with your syntax I get a fail:

FG-60F-KATEST # show system central-management
config system central-management
set type fortimanager
set fmg ""

FG-60F-KATEST # execute central-mgmt register-device fgt60ftkchangeserial dummy
Start Registering ...
Registering device to FMG fail

What do you think, whats wrong? Must I make some changes on FMG-Cloud?
Over the Gui, I can register and authorize the FG.

Is there a possibility like Linux Machine to get the kernel info like tail -f /var/log/messages?


Thanx in advantage
