I don´t believe so. 

 

Wouldn´t make sense as well, in my mind...

If the device is not reachable anymore from the dashboard (local access denied) and you need to reset it and this wouldn´t be possible your device is useless.

Furthermore hopefully a device is in a safe area, where no one can easily reset a device (closed cabinet at least).

Kind of a big deal

What’s your issue? The MXs should revert to their previous configuration after a config change if it loses connectivity to the Meraki cloud. I believe the same goes with a firmware upgrade.

 

There is also the reset button on the MXs too. It forces the unit to clear its configuration and fetch it from the cloud again. So you can correct the configuration in the Dashboard and reset the device, so it grabs the new configuration.

 

EDIT: if you’re just talking about a restart there is always the power cable.
