PRTG Cluster to Single Master Node



Do you have any guidelines for decommissioning a cluster consisting of a master and fail-over node to a single master node? That is, what is the process to remove the secondary node to only have the master node remaining and not be in a cluster configuration anymore?

the steps would be:

  1. Uninstall PRTG from the Failover Node and remove all data folders and files from it.
  2. Revert the Master Node to Standalone with the PRTG Server Admin Tool, tab Cluster. See also Step 1 in this Guide.

That's it.

best regards.
