Upgrading from MX-100 to MX-250

Has anyone ever upgraded from the MX-100 to the MX-250? If so, did you lose any settings such as DHCP settings, V-Lan settings, Firewall Settings?

 

Thanks,

Jim

Kind of a big deal

There are only a few items that don't move over such as static WAN info, device name and notes.  There is a very good doc that covers it all and gives options for replacement methods: https://documentation.meraki.com/MX/Other_Topics/MX_Cold_Swap_Replacing_an_Existing_MX_with_a_Differ...

And don't forget the SFP(s) for the WAN ports.

Brandon,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. I got the SFP's today. Will be installing soon. Thanks for the help.

@BrandonS  Someone posted this reply. Any comments from you?

 

If I were you I would return the MX250.   Topology map does not work and your clients will show that they are connected to multiple switches... Its a mess... If I where you just return it.   I regret buying out my lease.

 

I thought I would get your thoughts

 

Thanks

Jim
