PRTG RPI Mini Probe // Deleting the config file manually?




Is it possible to delete a config file for core server IP, access key etc.. manually?

It can be overwrited by another configuration (I know that) but i would like to delete it manually straight from rpi config file, so it can be configure again and it wont ask you:

"A config file was already found. Do you want to reconfigure [y/N] "

If it can be deleted manually where is stored this config file? I cant find it anywhere..

Can you give me a tip?

Thank you, Best Regards.

configuration delete miniprobe prtg raspberry-pi

Hi Lukas,

In the path where the probe is installed to should be a "probe.conf"-file. Otherwise you can search on the system with the following command:
find / | grep probe.conf
Best regards.
