Deployment Meraki MX100 and MS250 switchs

Hello, We just moved to Meraki devices for our network, 1 MX100 and 8 MS250


What is currently setup is  each 4 switches are connected as physical stack ( 2 x 4 MS250 ) stacking cables.


Each stack connected to the MX100 with 1 uplink. 


I setup the VLANs routing on one stack and everything working as it should.


when I connected the 2nd stack and give one of the ports a Vlan number it took the IP and its working fine.


What I found that all the 2nd stack switches have RSTP enabled and passing traffic ( I think ) from the uplink of the 1st stack as its the one that have routing enabled . 


everything seems to be working fine but want to know what is the best way for this configuration.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Deployment Meraki MX100 and MS250 switchs

Typically I would make one switch stack the "core" switch stack. I would then connect the MX and the second switch stack to that.  I would give the "core" switch stack a spanning tree priority of 0.
