This recipe is part of the process of deploying FortiAnalyzer for the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). See below for the rest of the recipes in this process:
- Initial Deployment
- Registering and Downloading Your License
- Connecting to the FortiAnalyzer-VM
- Adding a Disk to the FortiAnalyzer-VM for Logging
You are required to add another disk to store logs.
- Log into the GCP Compute Engine.
- Go to the Disks page.
- Create a blank disk in the same zone where the FortiAnalyzer-VM resides. Disk size varies depending on the license.
- Click Create. Ensure the disk appears in the Disks list.
- You must attach the disk to the FortiAnalyzer-VM instance. Navigate to the FortiAnalyzer-VM instance and start the gcloud command.
- Click RUN IN CLOUD SHELL.
- Delete the lines that appear in the command line.
- Enter the following command:
gcloud compute instances attach-disk [INSTANCE_NAME] --disk [DISK_NAME]
For example, the above instance has the instance name “jkato-faz564-test002” and disk name “jkato-faz-564-test005″. In this case, the command is as follows:
gcloud compute instances attach-disk jkato-faz564-test002 --disk jkato-faz-564-test005
- After attaching the disk, log into the FortiAnalyzer-VM management GUI.
- Click System Settings. Invoke the command line by clicking the icon in the CLI Console widget.
- In the command line window, enter
exec lvm info. The recently added disk is shown as Unused.
exec lvm startto start LVM disk management. Enter
yto continue. The system reboots.
- Rebooting causes the connection to the CLI console and the management GUI to be lost. Repeat steps 9 to 11. The disk now appears as Used.
exec lvm extend. This incorporates the disk into the FortiAnalyzer system.
- To add more disks later, follow steps 4 to 6 in http://kb.fortinet.com/kb/microsites/microsite.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=FD40848.
- Go to the Dashboard. You will now have sufficient disk space.
