Probe GUID question

Is it possible to retrieve a GUID from the PRTG website to input into a new probe?

One of the servers has failed which previously had a Probe on it.. The machine has now been rebuilt but we would like to link this machine to the previous historical data.

Specifically as mentioned above we DO NOT have access to the old running probe. However this information must be stored within PRTG somewhere.. How can we extract this to re-enter it in the new probe.

Thanks!

You can get the GID from the configuration file PRTG Configuration.dat, just look for ID of the probe, you will the see the GID tag.
