Did you mean: 

new interface was built on FTD for Meraki device management.




The one Access Point Migrated is complaining: - "Uplink IP address in conflict with another device - " - indicating a duplicate IP Address



AP MAC Address = e455.a82d.4048 
IP address = (handed out via the FTD DHCP pool).


When we look at the ARP table on the AP we see the following conflict - hence the Meraki Portal error: -
IP            MAC         48:2e:72: fb:40:29 - Firewall also claiming to be .30.      48:2e:72: fb:40:29 - Firewall MAC address (the gateway for the Access Point)


MAC address 48:2e:72: fb: 40:29 is on the Firewall.
Interface Ethernet1/6 "infra-mgmt", is up, line protocol is up.
  Hardware is EtherSVI, BW 1000 Mbps, DLY 10 usec
        MAC address 482e.72fb.4029, MTU 1500

Hey, Thanks again for your reply. Actually, we don't have access to the customer devices. This is something customer raised to us for the technical help.  

So, I just want myself to be prepared before going into the troubleshooting call and device access. 

Actually, A new interface built for the Meraki Device management and that interface MAC address is conflicting with Meraki Device.  

Can you please help me the steps for the troubleshooting steps by steps. Not sure about the option of IP address exclusion in FTD DHCP server. 

@Rock29 proxy arp? check NAT rules.
