How to make a non licenced sensor active



I am using the free 10 sensor version.

When 10 sensors are in use, how can I cancel/pause one that I don't want, and then activate the sensor I want?

I know how to pause or delete a sensor that I don't want. But I have not managed to activate the sensor I want before the system automatically chooses another one for me that I don't want.

PRTG goes through the sensors "tree-like", so in the order the sensors are in the device tree. That should also be the way they are resumed in this case. So it may help to simply move the sensor/device higher in the device tree.

best regards.
