Today I was doing some changes on my MS switches. After doing the changes and trying to understand why they didn't work, I realized the configuration was "out of date". After some time, the config changed to "up to date", so I thought it was a temporary issue. But right now I am doing more changes, and the config keeps "out of date" for many minutes (right now more than 18). According to the documentacion and also to the following thread, there are 3 reasons an AP on your network will report this alert message (and I think is the same for the switches):
I am pretty sure point 1 and 2 are not the root cause, since my firewall is not blocking ports, the DNSs are reachable, and also I made many configuration changes other days and they worked well. What can be the reason? How can I check is not a Meraki dashboard or Meraki public servers issue?
Are you making the changes to an AP or Switch? What type of changes are you making? I can possibly try in my dashboard to see how long it takes. Also double check Help>Firewall Info to verify the things listed there are not possibly blocked upstream.
I just tested that from my dashboard. Took < 10 seconds for the switch to get the config update. Note: I only changed one port. It was an access port and I changed it from one VLAN to another. My dashboard is on n86 though so your host could be different.
So it is weird. I also have changed only one port from VLAN 1 to VLAN 20. Right now is "out of date" for 44 minutes :S
Right now the config changed to "up to date". Is there any place when I can see logs or something to try to see what is happening?
Today is fine, if I make a config change it takes around 1-2 minutes to update. Maybe the yesterday's cause was a Dashboard temporary outage.
Good to know it was temporary.
