Hello,

 

Do you get any error while creating VLAN interface? Moreover, you may consider to create a VLAN interface in CLI:

 

config system interface
edit <interface name>
set vdom <vdom name>
set ip <ip address>
set interface <parent interface>
set vlanid <vlanid>
next
end

same error with command line

maximum entry is reached
I think due to evaluation license limited to 3 interfaces.
Bad news for me I will delete the vm and try something else to replace my pfsense in my lab

thx for your help

Hello,

 

It is actually documented:

https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/7.2.4/administration-guide/441460/permanent-trial-mode-...

 

You may consider to create 2 regular interfaces and 1 VLAN interface for testing purposes.
