I'm not an employee of Cisco/Meraki. My posts are based on Meraki best practice and what has worked for me in the field.
Just browsing

I received that automated email on my CMNA renewal that I do not meet the requirement because I don't work for a Cisco Meraki authorized reseller which I clearly do and they sent this no renewal notice to my work email which is tied to my employer which is an authorized Meraki reseller and we just sold a bunch of Meraki hardware during Cisco EOY. And then they said for questions send it to which I did and it turns out it was another non-monitored automated mailbox indicating the renewal is automatic and no longer manual process with no human support. So I guess I have to look for another partner's hardware to deploy in our lab.

Building a reputation

Hehe. This is something several partners were facing. I just wrote an email to them aswell and let's see 🙂

@MK7 - I apologize I did not see your message about this until now. Thank you and @MerryAki for raising this question here! I'm sorry for the frustration you've felt of reaching out and not getting a response. 


Meraki is currently going through some changes in how we manage promo gear, and executive leadership is working on a more sustainable and long term solution. Until then, Cisco partners can obtain licenses via the NFR process. Please work with your ordering team to request NFR licensing. More info on that can be found here:


I've also notified our internal team to update the documentation and auto emails about this. 

Get notified when there are additional replies to this discussion.
