Combine two locations into one

I have two separate locations, under one dashboard, each using a single MX64W.  I'd like to treat it as one network with shared group policies, security and same devices between locations etc. - simply management across both locations.  There are no VPNs or connectivity set up other than internet at each location.  

 

As you can tell I'm a novice and couldn't find anything that walked me through how to do this.

 

Thanks for any help.

you cant have 2 mx in one network other then active/standby mode.  you could look at the possibility of a using template and bind both networks to the template.

Hi @SBMMKL 

 

@ww  is correct, but maybe you use the VPN tunnel to concentrate all your traffic from MX2 to MX1 and manage your devices and plolices in your "main" MX1.
