I've installed PRTG on my company to monitor several customers. They all have an Active Directory, an Exchange server and other servers. For all these services, I've created dedicated groups on PRTG and run a first auto-discover (Customer1_AD, Customer1_Exchange, Customer2_AD, Customer2_Exchange etc...). PRTG discovered several sensors.
Now that all customers are monitored, I'd like to fine-tune sensors and setup same thresholds for each sensors of same service. I would like to find a quick way to change all sensor and avoid to go through each sensor of a device.
I performed a test and created an auto-discover template based on the AD device of customer1. I setup thresholds for memory, disk usage and CPU. Then, on AD device of customer2, I ran an auto-discover with template and chose the template created before. I thought it will replace all sensors with ones on the template, and set the thresholds but it did not work. Existing sensors are not replaced.
I would like advice on how to manage and update sensors for same kind of servers once they are already deployed. Should I use tags like "Exchange_Memory", "AD_Memory" and then use multi-edit? Or is their another easiest way?
Hope that my explanation is clear.
Thank you in advance.
