I've asked this a few years back through mail, but at that time there were no features that could solve my problem, but since we are 6 versions further now I hope there is a solution.
We have multiple high-availability/failover clusters here (not a PRTG failover setup, but failover servers). We can reach the currently active server with the name system-msq-pcls.
When I add system-msq-pcls to PRTG, it seems to look for the IP-address that is currently attached to that name.
When we move our services to the other nodes on the failovercluster, we can reach that server through the same name, but PRTG seem to be cashing the IP-address that was attached when I added it, which leads to all the services being down while they are not down. Is there a solution to make PRTG look for the hostname instead of the IP?
As a work-around I thought of adding both servers of the clusters separately. But then I need to auto-acknowledge/pause an alarm if the service is UP at the other server, but I don't know it how set this up, if that's even possible.
I hope someone can help me with my questions.
Thanks in advance!
