the "Cluster Key" is a password for all nodes in a PRTG Cluster. You can create this by yourself, it ensures that only your PRTG Nodes are in your cluster and not any "rogue"-nodes.

Please open the PRTG Server Administrator on the systems where you have installed your PRTG nodes. You can alter the cluster access key there.

best regards.
