Re: setting up Cisco Meraki equipment

Hi @menyarito , what eqpt are you deploying?


Firstly, do you have an upstream firewall?  If so you’ll need to open up certain firewall ports to allow the Meraki eqpt to register out to the cloud.  You can find that information in your dashboard in the Help section.

 

Some quick start guides below which lead into the install guides

Hello @UCcert 

we deploying Meraki MX68W.

When setting up Cisco Meraki equipment for the first time, we can say that we need an administrator account to access the Meraki dashboard?
Thanks in advance

Re: setting up Cisco Meraki equipment

Hi @menyarito 

 

so you’re setting up an MX device?

 

Have you received your eqpt and license from Meraki? Have you created a new Organisation and Network for your company and site in the dashboard?

Not yet.

Yes.

 

Can we conclude that to configure Cisco Meraki equipment for the first time, we need:
1. Cloud Enterprise License.
2.Meraki Dashboard Account.
3. Meraki order number or the serial number of the device.
