In this example, you will learn how to export a policy package from one FortiManager to another FortiManager.

1. Select a FortiManager Policy Package and Installation Target you want to export

Select a FortiManager Policy Package and its installation target.

For example, 

Policy Package PP_001
Installation Target Device1

2. Download the Latest Revision

  1. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups > double-click the Installation Target Device.
  2. Go to System: Dashboard > Configuration and Installation Status > Total Revisions
  3. Download the latest revision.
    For example, Revision 1.

For example,

  1. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups > double-click Device1

    1. Go to your second FortiManager.
    2. Go to Device Manager > Device & Groups > click Add Device. The Add Device wizard is displayed.

    3. Select Add Model Device and complete the wizard.

For example, FG200D12345985242 is the original SN.
