Hi there

Unfortunately at the moment there is something like a mixed mode. Some are configured with IPv4 Address, some with Hostname.

What Impact can this happen? Do I have to change everything to one mode?

thnx and regards

With IP-Addresses that's normal, if the NIC which has the IP bound to, is down, you can't ping it. So can't PRTG. That's not an issue in PRTG, that's normal networking. However, if you use a hostname, and it has several IPs set to it in the DNS, it might work better.
