Moving sensors to cluster probe



I've set up a clustering configuration and it works fine. But I noticed that when I move my devices to the cluster probe, I cant see my devices in the failover node pc. Only the probe device default sensors is all I can see. I'm expecting that if you move your sensors to the cluster probe, it will display also to the failover node pc.

And if the Master node corrupts its data, does the failover node have saved of its own? If have, where it is located?

Dear danpaolosoriano

Thank you for using PRTG. A PRTG cluster is always an active/active configuration. The failover keeps it own set of historic data.

The folder location of the data can be checked using the "PRTG Administrator" tool found in the PRTG program group on that server.

About the issue with the devices moved into the cluster probe, please contact us by using the PRTG webinterface, menu Setup / Contact Support. Please make sure you checked the "Support Bundle" option. This bundle contains a selection of important log files.
