Device identification (5.6)

Device identification (5.6)

New Device Identification features added to FortiOS 5.6.

Changed default for device-identification-active-scan to disabled (380837)

It was decided that most customers would not appreciate a default setting that resulted in the FortiGate probing their systems, so active scan option is changed to disabled by default going forward, but upgrade code is added to keep the option enabled for those upgrading from 5.4.0 or 5.4.1 who were using device-identification with active scan enabled.

Diagnose command changes
