Monitoring sensors for a cluster server




I have two servers. One Primary and one cluster server. As you know, if something goes wrong with the primary server, the cluster server gets acivated and becomes a primary server and vice-versa.

Now, imagine i have drives D, E, and F on primary server and something went wrong so naturally these 3 drives will show red in PRTG. Apparently, the cluster server will get activated and act as primary server. But, at the same time, the logical drives on the acting-primary server are not found. I mean, the drives get swapped automatically BUT i am unable to monitor the same in PRTG.

The whole point is, once primary is swapped to cluster and vice-versa, drives should not be turned RED as the same drives are been swapped on the cluster server.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. May I ask, to which exact sensor type are you referring to? Also, can you please upload a screenshot showing the "Settings" of this sensor? Thank you.

best regards.
