Export probe sensors?



Hi, Is there a easy way to export sensors for one probe? Ill have a probe and the site we have monitoring wants to have ther own prtg monitor.

So can we export notifications, logs, sensor graphs, triggers etc?

that is not possible, sorry.

what could work is to copy your configuration to the new server, delete all devices under the local probe and then move all devices from the remote probe to the local probe.

but this is just for not having to create the devices again.

Best is to start with a clean setup.

Hi, I think you really need some sort of export tool. It really is a missing feature. We have just finished our trial, and purchased the product, but we don’t want to install the production license on the test server, and then move the configuration – as this will bring across many configuration details that are incorrect. We just want to export the config of some key sensors and channels – however it seems this is not possible – so we are _forced_ to re-create them This really is not acceptable Please consider adding this feature to assist your customers Thanks David Frith

Thank you very much for your feedback, we appreciate it, and will put this on the wishlist! You could though migrate the entire configuration, and then deleted the "not necessary" objects in the new PRTG System.
