What should I anticipate for my core server failure?
I intend to have another server standing by exactly like the failed unit waiting to go into service if need be. I am currently backing up my PRTG database,configuration and history every day to another storage platform.
I have currently 1000 sensors distributed amongst 20 or more remote probes.
Do I simply reinstall my current PRTG version on the new server, migrate the database and change the network IPs of the NICs to match the old failed server?
What else should I know about this server plan? Will my history be ok? Will the remote probes buffer their info? Will they automatically reconnect?
What else should I anticipate?
