Mapping FortiGate interfaces

On page 11 of the User Guide, it says this:

 

"To convert to the proper naming convention, we can select the Ethernet1/1 who is parent for more sub-interfaces (vlan tags) and click on the Remap Interface Name located at the bottom left-side bar"

 

When I select an interface then click on the "Remap Interface Name" I do not get a pop-up box like the User Guide states.  I am unable to remap interfaces.  Could I skip this section, then do a find/replace within a specific text file?  If not, how do I resolve.

if you look in the lower right hand corner you will be prompted to choose a template and vsys before the pop box is initaited. 

 

Can you verify if those options have been selected prior to clicking on the remap interfaces.

 

lets go Pats BTW!

Hello sjanita,

You are correct!  Thank you.  Maybe an update to the User Guide to point this out would be good.

 

GO PATS!

Hello sjanita,

Do you know which vsys option is best?  I only had one template option called default_template1 so I picked that.  Regarding vsys, there are two options:  shared and root.  We are not using multiple virtual systems in our environment.

 

How about those PATS!

 

Thank you,

Brian
