I had to downgrade back to build 670 due to weirdness with v5.2.4. My perfectly working lab FWF60D start show heavy disconnects. I also found numerous log messages under Event> Systems & at 2-5 mins intervals similar to the below.
Looking at the alert it pertains to ipv6 RA-Advertisements, which is going to make me look more into the reason why. For my issues ; " I couldn't even ping locally or remotely & in some cases I could not access the fortigate via SSH or HTTPS".
Another issues that was also precedent, the 3G modem that's my WAN uplink uses was not being found. This was true even you execute a diag sys modem reset or unplugged and re-plugged the huawei 3G modem.
note: you can use the hidden fnsysctl command to query the proc usb devices to validate
Next, I found out that unit had executed a reboot due to my low uptime times. So something was crashing the unit, but I had no ideal as to what due to no syslog or other off-unit logging.
Typically, I almost never downgrade but in this case " I have no other choice ". The continual logs messages such as these and the poor performance on my-lab in home fortigate, requires me to drop back to last known good build v5.2.3 aka b670.
I will not continue on v5.2.4 until others in the community have taken some time to evaluate this build
