Combined Network vs SM

I have been using Meraki for SM up till now for MDM of various ipads, etc.  I just bought Meraki hardware and am a little confused as it wont let me mix SM and meraki hardware, is that correcT?

 

I have SM clients that will be used in the network I just made of meraki hardware (switch, appliance, ap) and I would like to put them all together, this is not possible?

That is correct. You can not combine other network types with Systems Manager.

Thanks, so the best practice is just to create the hardware networks and their corresponding SM networks or do you typically create your hardware networks and dump all SM into a single SM network?

I typically create a combined network per physical site for all the Cisco Meraki physical hardware.

I typically create one Systems Manager network for the entire organisation.

Thanks, I assume there would be no issue creating multiple SM networks though correct?  I have multiple separate divisions within the company that i would like to keep completely separate.

I've never done it, but I don't see any issue with that.

You could also use tags for this purpose (creating a tag per division) and assign those tags to the devices.
