Hi svk253- You are correct, the entire Dashboard Org is licensed as a whole. If you purchase a renewal for only some of the devices within the org, you have to remove those devices to be in compliance.

CraigCummings I’d like to apologize for the frustration around your experience. Meraki’s licensing model was created with the intent to be straight forward and simple. All Dashboard licenses co-terminate, providing you with one Dashboard expiration date. This has been done so customers don’t have to juggle multiple end dates however if this was never shared or explained I can certainly see how it would create frustration. This quick 2-min YouTube video can provide you with an overview of how we co-terminate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHmR1DPI4cY We will always provide warnings before a network is shut down for licensing compliance. Warnings start at 90-days and they are sent to the e-mail address associated with your Dashboard login. If you joined a device, such as the Z1 mentioned, to your Dashboard org but never added a license key you will be put into a 30-day grace period allowing time to add the license before shut down. If there is unlicensed hardware within your org, you can simply remove or “unclaim” the gear and you’ll be back in compliance. Full documentation regarding Meraki Licensing can be found in the link below. https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Licensing/Cisco_Meraki_Licensing_Guidelines_and_Limitations
