auto-install
Use this command to configure automatic installation of firmware and system configuration from a USB disk when the FortiGate unit restarts. This command is available only on units that have a USB disk connection.
If you set both configuration and firmware image update, both occur on the same reboot. The FortiGate unit will not reload a firmware or configuration file that is already loaded.
Third-party USB disks are supported; however, the USB disk must be formatted as a FAT16 drive. No other partition type is supported.
To format your USB Disk when its connected to your FortiGate unit, at the CLI prompt type
exe usb-disk format”.
To format your USB disk when it is connected to a Windows system, at the command prompt type “format <drive_letter>: /FS:FAT /V:<drive_label>” where <drive_letter> is the letter of the connected USB drive you want to format, and <drive_label> is the name you want to give the USB disk volume for identification.
 
This command is available only when a USB key is installed on the FortiGate unit. Formatting your USB disk will delete all information on your USB disk.
