Co-termination and Per-device License Calculation

Dear community,

How to calculate the license on MX, MS? if we convert the license from co- to per-devices.
Here is the example: we have two MX, one MS use Co-termination license for a half year already then we bought a new MX one more. Due Meraki has announced per-devices license and benefit we would like to convert.


Thank beforehand,

no problem, sorry to bombard you with links:

I would also reach out to both your Meraki Account Manager and or Meraki support who should be able to calculate what your licence calculations would look like should you move to the per-device license structure.

Re: Co-termination and Per-device License Calculation

There is no calculation.

 

They just generate per-device licenses for all existing licenses in your organization with the expiration date equal to the co-termination date currently listed.

Re: Co-termination and Per-device License Calculation

@MakaraMEAS I did the change myself there is no real change in end dates. For me the PDL is too complex and would´ve actually wanted to stick to co-term. I see PDL value to organisations having franchisee business or bigger rollout projects.

 

Please note that if you do decide to go ahead there is no turning back while having second thoughts later on. there is a reminder on that as well. Hope it helps.
