Hello, we have a question.

In case we are using a failover PRTG server and the primary server fails, are remote probes going to be automatically connected to the failover server?

Or we have to make some manual configuration each case we have a server failure?

when setting PRTG up as a cluster remote probes are not clustered. This means they are only and exclusive connected to the Master Node. This cannot even be changed by reconfiguring as the Failover Node only holds the configuration of the Cluster Probe. We are planning clustered remote probes but there is absolutely no release data set resp. final decision made
Best regards
