Hi there,

Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment and will most likely not be possible in future.

How to move the probe to another server while preserving all devices, sensors, maps, ID's?

Created on Nov 11, 2016 5:30:00 AM



If you want to move to the probe to another PRTG Core Server, then this is not possible. The reason for that is, that the configuration files and historic data of the sensors are on the original PRTG Core Server and cannot be moved.

But if you want to move the remote probe to another computer, copy the GID displayed in the PRTG Administration Tool, uninstall the PRTG Remote Probe service on the old server and install it on the new. Afterwards enter the IP address of the Core Server, the GID of the Probe you had copied before and the Probe Access Key.
