Moving Devices between Organizations

Hi All

 

Quick query on moving licenses/ devices between organizations.  When they move (post emailing support at meraki to do it) - do they retain their current configuration or do they lose any previous config?

As highlighted early in this documentation, they will essentially lose their config:

https://documentation.meraki.com/General_Administration/Inventory_and_Devices/Moving_Devices_between...

 Bear in mind that you can have a replacement config all ready for them, in a new Network, in the destination Organization.   It's possible to use the Dashboard API and some publicly available scripting to 'get' config from the existing Org and 'put' it into the destination too.  (this is discussed in other threads on here)

Brilliant - thanks for that 🙂

Kind of a big deal

@DaltonD if configs were able to be migrated I would see that as a major security flaw.

Good point.  Agreed

Just to add, although in the documentation it states that static IP addressing will be lost when you move a device from one organization to another, we found that it is retained when moving MR52 access points at least.  I cannot vouch for other devices, but it was very useful for us 😎 

 

We also found that the APs continued to operate as normal, even for the 15-20 minutes where they were in neither organization's inventory, which was extra useful!

Good info - Thanks
