License Editions:

An organization must have a valid Enterprise Edition license or Advanced Security Edition license for the MX series in order to work properly. Each organization is licensed for a maximum number of security appliances for a certain amount of time (typically from one year to five years). For example, the organization may be licensed for 25 appliances with the Enterprise Edition through January 30, 2012.

In addition, each organization is required to use either the Enterprise Edition or the Advanced Security Edition uniformly. For example, you can have all 25 appliances using Enterprise Edition or Advanced Security Edition, but you cannot have 20 appliances using one edition and 5 using the other edition. If you wish to use Enterprise Edition for some appliances and Advanced Security Edition for other appliances, you need to create two organizations, one for your appliances with the Enterprise Edition, and another for the appliances with the Advanced Security Edition.

You can manage a given organization's licenses on the Organization > License info page. The page displays the following information:

  • Status: OK or problem
  • Expiration date
  • MX Advanced Security Enabled or Disabled
  • Licensed device limit for each device type
  • Current device count for each device type
  • License history (list of licenses that have been applied to the network)

Adding licenses

You can add a license by clicking Add another license. You will then have two actions, or "operations", to choose from:

  • License more devices: increases the number of devices that can exist within this Cisco Meraki Dashboard organization.
  • Renew my Dashboard license: extends the licensing period of this Cisco Meraki Dashboard organization. You must renew the license for all devices in the organization. You cannot renew licensing for only certain devices within the organization.

You cannot add an Enterprise MX license to an Advanced Security organization. Adding an Advanced Security license to an Enterprise organization will convert that organization to Advanced Security. All existing Enterprise MX licenses will have their duration halved to compensate for the difference in the licensing costs, and the organization's license cotermination date will be adjusted accordingly.

Expired licenses or exceeding the licensed device limit

If an organization's license is expired or the number of devices in the organization exceeds the licensed limit, the administrator has 30 days to return the organization to a valid licensed state. During this grace period, the system reminds the administrator to add additional licenses. After 30 days, administrators are not able to access the Dashboard (except to add additional licenses) and all Cisco Meraki equipment in the organization will cease to function.
