Description
This article describes how to update the GeoIP database on FortiGate equipment. The GeoIP database version does not always update when the following command is run:

# execute update now

Solution
Here is a step by step guide:

1) First check the geoip database current version:

# diagnose autoupdate versions

IP Geography DB
---------
Version: 1.067
Contract Expiry Date: n/a
Last Update Date: Fri Oct 13 15:43:53 2017

2) Update the geo-ip database

#execute update-geo-ip 

3) Check version:

# diagnose autoupdate versions

IP Geography DB
---------
Version: 2.004
Contract Expiry Date: n/a
Last Update Date: Fri Oct 13 15:43:53 2017

If the database has not been updated please open a ticket for Fortinet support and attach the result of the next debug command.

#diag deb app upda -1 
#diag deb enable
#execute update-geo-ip 

When completed, clear out the debug with:

#diag deb dis 
#diag deb reset
