This section describes what configuration settings will be cloned when using the Clone feature in Meraki Dashboard. This powerful tool is perfect for both one-to-one and one-to-many
configuration cloning. It is designed to copy port-level, and some switch-level configuration settings from a source switch to another switch of the same model.

If the switches you are cloning are connected, configuration will immediately take effect

How to clone

1. From the Monitor > Switches page, choose one or all of the switches you would like to be configured from a source by checking the check box(es)

2. Choose "Clone" at the top of the page

3. Select the source switch that you would like to clone the setting from and choose "Clone"

Switch-level configuration

STP Bridge priority (Configure > Switch settings)

Port Mirroring (Configure > Switch settings)

Port-level configuration

The following settings will be cloned from the source switch to the destination switch:
  • Port Name
  • Port Tags
  • Interface state
  • Spanning tree
  • STP guard / BPDU guard
  • PoE
  • Link 
  • Port schedules (access only)
  • Interface Type
  • Access policy (access only)
  • MAC whitelist (access only)
  • Whitelisted MACs (access only)
  • Sticky MAC whitelist (access only)
  • Whitelist size limit  (access only)
  • VLANs (trunk only)
  • Voice VLAN (access only)
  • Allowed VLAN (trunk only)

 

Note that if cloning a non-PoE switch to a PoE switch, the PoE state of 'disabled' will be applied to the clone destination
