Configure multiple FortiAnalyzers on a multi-VDOM FortiGate

Configure multiple FortiAnalyzers on a multi-VDOM FortiGate

This topic shows a sample configuration of multiple FortiAnalyzers on a multi-VDOM FortiGate.

In this example:

  • The FortiGate has three VDOMs: l Root (management VDOM) l VDOM1 l VDOM2 l There are four FortiAnalyzers.

These IP addresses are used as examples in the instructions below.

  • FAZ1: 16.200.55 l FAZ2: 172.18.60.25 l FAZ3: 192.168.1.253 l FAZ4: 192.168.1.254
  • Set up FAZ1 and FAZ2 under global.
  • These two collect logs from the root VDOM and VDOM2.
  • FAZ1 and FAZ2 must be accessible from management VDOM root. l Set up FAZ3 and FAZ4 under VDOM1. l These two collect logs from VDOM1. l FAZ3 and FAZ4 must be accessible from VDOM1.

To set up FAZ1 as global FortiAnalyzer 1 from the GUI:

Prerequisite: FAZ1 must be reachable from the management root VDOM.

  1. Go to Global > Log & Report > Log Settings.
  2. Enable Send logs to FortiAnalyzer/FortiManager.
  3. Enter the FortiAnalyzer IP.

In this example: 172.16.200.55.

  1. For Upload option, select Real Time.
  2. Select Apply.

To set up FAZ2 as global FortiAnalyzer 2 from the CLI:

Prerequisite: FAZ2 must be reachable from the management root VDOM.

config log fortianalyzer2 setting set status enable set server “172.18.60.25” set upload-option realtime end

To set up FAZ3 and FAZ4 as VDOM1 FortiAnalyzer 1 and FortiAnalyzer 2:

Prerequisite: FAZ3 and FAZ4 must be reachable from VDOM1.

config log setting set faz-override enable

end

config log fortianalyzer override-setting set status enable set server “192.168.1.253” set upload-option realtime

end

config log fortianalyzer2 override-setting set status enable set server “192.168.1.254” set upload-option realtime

end

Diagnose command to check FortiAnalyzer connectivity

To use the diagnose command to check FortiAnalyzer connectivity:

  1. Check global FortiAnalyzer status:

FGTA(global) # diagnose test application miglogd 1 faz: global , enabled server=172.16.200.55, realtime=3, ssl=1, state=connected, src=, mgmt_name=FGh_Log_ root_172.16.200.55, reliable=1 status: ver=6, used_disk=0, total_disk=0, global=0, vfid=0 conn_verified=N SNs: last sn update:1369 seconds ago. Sn list:

  1. Check VDOM1 override FortiAnalyzer status:

FGTA(global) # diagnose test application miglogd 3101 faz: vdom, enabled, override server=192.168.1.253, realtime=1, ssl=1, state=connected, src=, mgmt_name=FGh_Log_ root_192.168.1.253, reliable=1 status: ver=6, used_disk=0, total_disk=0, global=0, vfid=0 conn_verified=N SNs: last sn update:1369 seconds ago.
