You can use the sensor-fatory sensor for this. In the "status-definition" you can use a function like: status(7847) OR status(7853) to show an UP state if either of the 2 sensors is up. The numbers are the IDs of the sensors.

There's quite a good documentation about it here.

@Lars: Just edited the link to the manual for the latest version. The status definition additionally needs to be put into brackets:

(status(7847) OR status(7853))

Thank you for your help,

i used http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg7/sensor_factory too.

Edit:

Sorry but i have still 1 problem, i have a sensor up or down as i want but my computer continues to read the worst sensor state.

I created a Sensor Factory which say:" i have 5 sensors up and 1 sensor down in my computer so i'm up" but my computer is still down because he looks my sensor down.

Sorry for my english,

Stagiaire2.

Hi,

If you do not want to get a red device, you can automatically acknowledge the alerts with a small workaround. Please have a look here for the step by step guide.
