Fortinet device does not download configuration or connect with banners enabled

Updated May 29, 2017

Overview

FortiGate or Fortinet devices are not connecting or downloading configuration through NCM when a banner is enabled.

Environment

All NCM versions

Cause 

When a FortiGate device changes its prompt to $ or is already configured with a $ prompt, the banner is used as the prompt if the device template is not configured to recognize the $ prompt.

Resolution

  • Add the following lines to the template if the device is configured to disable paging:
    <Command Name="MenuBased" Value="false"/>
    <Command Name="RESET" Value="" RegEx="$"/>
    <Command Name="VirtualPrompt" Value="$"/>
  • Add the following lines to the template if the device is not configured to disable paging:

    <Command Name="MenuBased" Value="false"/>

    <Command Name="RESET" Value="config system console ${CRLF}set output standard ${CRLF}end" RegEx="$"/>

    <Command Name="VirtualPrompt" Value="$"/
