Configuring inter-VDOM links in a virtual clustering configuration

Configuring inter-VDOM links in a virtual clustering configuration

Configuring inter-VDOM links in a virtual clustering configuration is very similar to configuring inter-VDOM links for a standalone FortiGate unit. The main difference the config system vdom-link command includes the vcluster keyword. The default setting for vcluster is vcluster1. So you only have to use the vcluster keyword if you are added an inter-VDOM link to virtual cluster 2.

 

To add an inter-VDOM link to virtual cluster 1

This procedure describes how to create an inter-VDOM link to virtual cluster 1 that results in a link between the root and vdom_1 virtual domains.

Inter-VDOM links are also called internal point-to-point interfaces.

1. Add an inter-VDOM link called vc1link.

config global

config system vdom-link edit vc1link

end

Adding the inter-VDOM link also adds two interfaces. In this example, these interfaces are called vc1link0 and vc1link1. These interfaces appear in all CLI and web-based manager interface lists. These interfaces can only be added to virtual domains in virtual cluster 1.

2. Bind the vc1link0 interface to the root virtual domain and bind the vc1link1 interface to the vdom_1 virtual domain.

config system interface edit vc1link0

set vdom root

next

edit vc1link1

set vdom vdom_1 end

 

To add an inter-VDOM link to virtual cluster 2

This procedure describes how to create an inter-VDOM link to virtual cluster 2 that results in a link between the vdom_2 and vdom_3 virtual domains.

1. Add an inter-VDOM link called vc2link.

config global

config system vdom-link edit vc2link

set vcluster vcluster2 end

Adding the inter-VDOM link also adds two interfaces. In this example, these interfaces are called vc2link0 and vc2link1. These interfaces appear in all CLI and web-based manager interface lists. These interfaces can only be added to virtual domains in virtual cluster 2.

2. Bind the vc2link0 interface to the vdom_2 virtual domain and bind the vc2link1 interface to the vdom_3 virtual domain.

config system interface edit vc2link0

set vdom vdom_2 next

edit vc2link1

set vdom vdom_3 end
