CLI changes for FortiLink mode

CLI changes for FortiLink mode (447349, 473773)

There are changes to the execute switch-controller get-physical-connection, execute switch-controller get-conn-status, and diagnose switch-controller dump networkupgrade status CLI commands.

  • The execute switch-controller get-physical-connection CLI command has new parameters:

Use the execute switch-controller get-physical-connection standard command to get the FortiSwitch stack connectivity graph in the standard output format.

Use the execute switch-controller get-physical-connection dot command to get the

FortiSwitch stack connectivity graph in a .dot (Graphviz) output format.

  • The execute switch-controller get-conn-status CLI command output now includes virtual

FortiSwitch units. Virtual FortiSwitch units are indicated by an asterisk (*) after the switch identifier. For example:

execute switch-controller get-conn-status

  • The diagnose switch-controller dump network-upgrade status CLI command output now

includes the location of the image that is loaded when the FortiSwitch unit is restarted. If the Next boot column is blank, the FortiSwitch unit uses the same location each it is restarted. The status column shows the percentage downloaded, the percentage erased in flash memory, and the percentage written to flash memory.

For example:

diagnose switch-controller dump network-upgrade status

Running                                       Status       Next boot
