I resolved to create a new device in Cluster node with ip 127.0.0.1 and I cloned the sensors here inside

Right click the device you'd like to move and select Move | Move to other group :)

Are you trying to move a device or a sensor? Only groups and devices can actually be moved to a different remote or cluster probe.

oh no! Does it mean that, if I have advanced sensors like xml / http rest in my local server probe on master server of cluster, to have them in cluster I have to do it again?

Initially I had only one prtg server, with 2 devices and 5 sensors each. Under Local Probe I had 93 sensors combined with the notifications. Now, I added a second prtg server and configured into clusters. I moved the devices under the cluster node to allow the cluster to monitor them. But how do my local sensors make them available to the cluster? Now, if I turn off the primary node, the secondary node monitors the devices but does not have sensors triggering notifications

So you moved them successfully? You probably created notifications at the level of the local probe. You can check this by clicking it and open the Notifications tab. You'll need to configure this on the cluster probe as well in order for these sensors to have the notifications applied as well. You can also click the root of the tree, go to notifications and add it there, it will be added to the complete tree.

When you're monitoring objects via the cluster probe, PRTG internally syncs the configuration to the failover node and the local probe continues to monitor these objects. They're just sorted beneath the cluster probe for "readability" purposes.

Not sure why it didn't work for you, but I just tested it and could move devices to a different probe just fine :( Guess the problem is actually solved, more ore less? :)
