After configuring a Cisco Meraki device's static IP address either from the dashboard or via the my.meraki.com Uplink configuration page, the device may report "Bad IP assignment configuration" in Dashboard. In the case that the device cannot get an ARP reply from its default gateway, it will revert back to using DHCP for its IP configuration. This is an intended function to bring the device online; if the device can't reach its default gateway, it will never report to Dashboard.
The Cisco Meraki Dashboard offers network administrators the ability to monitor and manage individual network clients, which can be helpful for both administration and troubleshooting purposes. This article overviews the client details page for MR, MS and MX/Z1 networks. You can get to this page by navigating to Monitor > Clients and clicking on the desired client.
Cisco Meraki devices will display their public IP address on their device status page. The device status page can be found for MX appliances by navigating to Monitor > Appliance status in Dashboard. On APs and switches, this can be found by going to the device listing page and then clicking a specific device (Monitor > Access points for APs and Monitor > Switches for switches). It is possible that this public IP address appears incorrect.
Configurations made on Dashboard are immediately saved on the cloud. However, the physical Cisco Meraki devices may take few moments to download those changes. This article explains how to monitor the configuration update status from the Dashboard to ensure that the Cisco Meraki devices are up to date.
Work stations in promiscuous mode can sniff LAN packets within their broadcast domain. A workstation connected to Cisco Meraki switches can capture these packets through port mirroring. This article will cover how to capture traffic passed by an MS switch, using the following steps:
Cisco Meraki devices can identify the hostname of a client device using NetBIOS, Bonjour and DHCP. In some instances, the detected hostname may undesirable. For example, 2 devices on the same network with identical hostnames or a device that has been identified by its MAC address. The hostname can be overridden within Dashboard by configuring a manual value.
Dashboard gives users the ability to download and export several types of data including Client data. When viewing this exported data, you may run into difficulties deciphering the time and date values as they are exported in the EPOCH time standard. The following steps explain how to export your client usage data, and convert that data into a more recognizable format:
One of the major benefits of using the Cisco Meraki Dashboard is an admin's ability to monitor the status of any network device, without the use of 3rd party management tools or solutions. A device's status page contains a lot of useful, up-to-date information about the device and connected hosts, including a number of "Live Tools" that can be used to see current information about the device. This article details the features and functions of the Live Tools available for the MS switch series.
