Best practices for moving a network from one Org to another while in production
I often demo Meraki equipment for new or existing clients. If they want to commit, I will set them up with a order# and create a new Organization within our MSP dashboard. Moving them while keeping the same equipment to a new Org is always a crapshoot and often means we need to run around and restarreset the hardware.
Is there a preferred method of doing this such as device order (MX first, then MR and MS)? I usually try to wait 15 minutes from the time remove the serial numbers from inventory (unclaim) and claiming them in the new org. This goes easy enough but the devices often do not pull down the new config and become unresponsive at which point I need to fiddle with it. I've tried doing this in a lab environment and got mixed results.

We always create a new Organisation for a new customer and assign the trial equipment to that Organisation. It also allows us to give them logins if they wish and a seamless route into production should they wish to continue.
We have a separate demo Organisation that we show them stats and functionality before ordering any trial hardware, but that's our own NFR kit and not used on customer sites except for a survey.
