Failover formation does not work.



We use 1 core node in cluster with a failover node. When the core node crashed the failover node said it became the master node. After the core node came back online nothing was monitored in the time the core node was down. How is this possible, do i miss any configuration?

did you move or copy all sensors from the Local Probe on the Master to the "Cluster Probe"? Because only the devices / sensors under the Cluster Probe are "shared" in a PRTG Cluster and then monitored all the time by all Cluster nodes.

best regards.

I "cloned" all my groups to the cluster probe. PRTG says now that there are hundreds of paused sensors, shouldent they get the same information?
