Description
A USB key can be used to upgrade or restore the configuration of a FortiGate.
 
The procedure is as follows:
  • Save the new firmware on a USB key.
  • On the FortiGate GUI, go to System > Maintenance > Advanced > USB auto-install > Check “On system restart, automatically update FortiGate firmware if default image name is available on the USB disk”.   (note that the default name is displayed and can be changed)
The same procedure can be used for configuration restore:
  • Save the configuration file to be used on a USB key.
  • From the FortiGate GUI, go to System > Maintenance > Advanced > USB auto-install > Check “On system restart, automatically update FortiGate configuration if default configuration name is available on the USB disk”.   (note that the default name is displayed and can be changed)


The CLI commands are the following ones :

config system auto-install
    set auto-install-config enable
    set auto-install-image enable
    set default-config-file "fgt_system.conf"
    set default-image-file "image.out"
