Migrate Sensor Trial version to Unlimited



I have two servers with trial licenses and active sensors. I installed a new server with an unlimited license. I need to migrate the sensors from the two trial servers to the new server with license. How can I do it?

Hi Felipe,

It won't be possible to partially migrate a configuration to an existing PRTG core server installation. It is only possible to copy the entire config over to a new machine.

Each object has a unique ID, which would overlap with existing IDs after a partial migration. There is a large complexity that prevent a partial migration due to the hierarchical structure and inherited dependencies, notifications, access privileges and monitoring-specific settings.

If you want to migrate the complete configuration to a new, separate server, you can follow this article.

Best regards, Felix
