FortiAnalyzer Configuration problems after initial deploy

FortiAnalyzer 5.4 Storage Quota Limits for ADOM root

FortiAnalyzer virtual appliance setup. Version 5.4.x

Disk configuration problem:

FortAnalyzer licensed disk alert configuration problem

FortiAnalyzer Problem:  How do I remove warning that “Hard drive allocated for this VM instance”  “is less than the licensed VM storage volume” .  

If I select the alert, a link to the FortiNet website is displayed:



Solution:   Frustratingly, to get this alarm to go away, you do need to add hard drives to the licensed limit (3.5 TB in my case).   I could not find any way to clear or acknowledge the alarm.

BUT, if you are using a virtualization solution, you CAN use thin provisioning to keep the size low.

To do this, shut down the FortiAnalyzer.  Add the virtual hard drives using your virtualization manager.  Turn the FortiAnalyzer back on.  Once it finishes booting, log onto the admin website and access the CLI window.

Enter command execute lvm extend  .  Reboot again if told to.

But… you will still have a problem with log retention…
