Migrate vMX100 from one Azure subscription to other.

Migrate vMX100 from one Azure subscription to other.

We have a vMX100 running in Azure West US. We plan to have in East Us(our new Azure setup). Do we have a possibility to move vMX to different region or should we deploy a new vMX.

Good question! If you had a physical device you could up sticks and move so the same theory should be applied here.

@Lohith : I am not sure about it but I think you can do that. I would recommend to have two vMX for high availability

Delete (hint, you have to delete the managed application) and re-deploy.


Note that the VMX100 is now EOL and you can not purchase renewals anymore.  To upgrade a VMX100 to a VMX-[s|m|l] you have to delete and re-deploy it.

Depending on how much of your licence you have left, I would consider buying a new VMX licence and deploying that instead, to save you from having to re-delete and re-deploy again in the future.

You may want to try your luck and see if you can get your license converted to a VMX-M license, as per this document, https://documentation.meraki.com/General_Administration/Licensing/Meraki_Licensing, under the 'License Conversions' section.
