How to move devices and sensors to remote probe from local probe?




I searched here, but was not able to find how to do this. The PRTG manual does not talk about this neither.

I have almost 7000 sensors in my installation and I would like to create a remote probe on another VM and move some of the devices from Local Probe to the Remote probe.

Can I just simply move the folder of PRTG main system to another VM and then convert the newly system to remote probe?

Thank you.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. To install a Remote Probe on a new machine, please simply follow the PRTG Manual on this.
To move devices then from the Local to the new Remote Probe, you can use Drag & Drop on the Management-Tab in the PRTG AJAX Webinterface.

best regards.
