3 MX's( MX250(1 No), MX450(2 No's - HA) in One Network is it possible ??

Hi All,

 

I have one scenerio where we are  with traditonal network setup and  using one MX250 -->MS250-->MR's for only Wi-Fi purpose and Network name is " ABC" under organisation. 

Now we are planning to move compeltely to Meraki kit,

when we try to add First MX to the same Network " ABC" it is throwging error as MX should be in same model.., i know it is comparing with exsiting MX250.

But as per our desing we would like to keep 3 MX's

 

MX450 as HA and MX250 as separate for Wi-Fi..is it possible to keep 3 MX's in same Network ?

No, you can only have one MX in a network (two if they are an HA pair).

You’ll need to put the others in a separate network.

Remember that a Meraki network is only a logical management structure, it doesn’t stop you connecting the devices however you want.

As @Bruce states you can’t have 3 MXs in the same network you’ll have to create different networks for them all.  You also have to ensure they’re all licensed the same ie Enterprise or Advanced Security. You can’t mix the Mx license structure for your Organisation.
