I keep getting alerts from devices I have deleted



I keep getting alerts over and over again on devices and sensors that have already been deleted. When I look in the PRTG log, it doesn't even show that these alerts are being sent to me. When I click on the link in the alert, I get a message that the sensor was removed. Does anyone have any clue what's going on, or how to stop this?

Hi there,

Is it possible that you run an additional instance with the same (but older) configuration?

Best regards.
