I need to replace a failed Meraki switch that is a member of an existing switch stack. I'm going to use the Clone and Replace feature, however, its not clear what is cloned from the failed/source switch to the replacement/destination switch. Are only the switchport settings etc copied or do these have to be manually reconfigured? Are other settings such as management IP address/hostname etc copied or do these have to be manually reconfigured as well?
Do check the following Url at the bottom of the page it is nicely listed down about all the settings that shall be cloned.
You may also watch the following video in case you wish to understand more on replacing a switch out of a stack.
From the couple of times I have done this everything has been carried across.
The only thing I can't remember is if the hostname is applied.
Two things I have noticed though
1: Some SNMP monitoring systems son't pick up on the change and serial numbers don't get updated (this may not apply)
2: don't forget to unclaim the faulty device otherwise you will start getting License issues
@Mosquitar,if, as your post suggests, you are replacing a member of a switch stack rather than a standalone switch then please have a look at this document, Replacing and Cloning Stack Members, as the process is slightly different to a straight Clone and Replace, and if its not done properly you can end up with other issues (key point is making sure the replacement switch is on the same firmware as the stack - check on the device status page - before adding it to the stack).
IP-address is not copied.
You can change it later.
