FortiGate firewalls activate every command immediately. To change the IP address and the default gateway on a remote device, can be very tricky.
Using Workspace Mode avoids this problem. I can create a batch of commands, which will only be activated on the final commit.
The transaction is started with:
Now I add all my commands.
The transaction is ended and the commands are activated:
execute config-transaction commit
The transaction can be aborted and the commands will be ignored:
execute config-transaction abort
It is possible to combine this with ⇒Config Save Revert.
There are some debug commands with Workspace Mode:
diagnose sys config-transaction status diagnose sys config-transaction show txn-cli-commands diagnose sys config-transaction show ?
