Hard Disk Logging Problems

If you are using a Fortigate model which has an on-board hard drive for logging locally and you don't see it show up in the "Log Access" section of the GUI try the following on the command line:

config log disk setting
set status enable

Then log out of the GUI and log back in. The "disk" option should now show in the "Log Access" section of the GUI. If it still does not show run the following command:

diag hardware deviceinfo ide hda

This will provide status on your logdisk on the Fortigate 800 and 1000 series. If your system does not show any information the log disk may have failed and you may have to RMA the drive or the entire unit.
