Setting default sensors/settings for new probes



Is it possible to choose which sensors are installed by default on a new probe?

Similarly, can the probe installer be set to automatically fill in connection details? (I can find mentions of "PRTGRemoteProbeCfgV13.exe" etc. for previous versions, but not the current)

Many thanks, Greg

Dear Greg,

Thank you very much for your KB-Post. Currently it is not possible to set a default set for sensors on Probe Devices. After a Probe Device was created, you can run an Auto-Discovery though, with a [https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/create_device_template.htm[Custom Device Template]], that has the sensors you want in it.

best regards.
