See the section in the document under, Do I have to buy more licenses every time I buy new hardware?
Some licenses can be carried forward and used on different models, and some licenses can be converted from one model to another for certain hardware replacements. You can contact support or sales for inquiries about specific models.
@JodyB, no, the license has to match the switch model exactly (only exception is the MS390 switch models). You’ll need to talk to your reseller and get a RMA on the incorrect license and order the correct one.
@MrComputerGuy Meraki equipment is cloud managed so you need the correct licence in your cloud dashboard to manage it. It is not designed for stand alone use.
Oh... ok. Well thats less than pleasing to here. Sad to hear your products are not like the other companies. Thank you for your time guess to the trash with the product. Also will not be able to recommend your pay to use products to my customers.
@MrComputerGuy I'm a customer not an Employee! Only those with a green M are Meraki employees. It is a different model but we find the costs are about the same as traditional Cisco, just divided differently.
