FortiGate Registration via WebUI: Reseller field is empty

In the last two weeks we received more and more reports about the problem that the reseller list remains empty when registering a FortiGate via WebUI, even if the correct country (Switzerland in our case) is selected.

The problem was also reported to us with the Country / Region field, but apparently this is filled in automatically after a waiting period.

Workaround 1

The actual workaround is to disable the anycast service. Afterwards the field is populated instantly with the correct reseller list.

config system fortiguard
set fortiguard-anycast disable

Please keep in mind that you will turn on the Anycast service again after registration.

Workaround 2

Register your FortiGate directly in the Fortinet support portal (
If you cannot register the FortiGate, please contact the Fortinet customer service team.
