Combining devices



Is there a way to combine devices? Basically what I'd like to do is have a single device, lets call it Server1. Then sensors under Server1 I have combined sensor configs that are connecting to different IP addresses. One IP is the OS, and the other is for the iDRAC. Currently, I have to add a device named Server1-iDRAC and I'd like to know if there is a way to combine. I'm pulling the Dell Health from the iDRAC interface and using SNMP to monitor hardware health.

in PRTG, a device object can have only one host/IP address. Devices cannot be combined, but you can put device objects in groups. This allows to create a tree which shows the logical structure.
