How to change PRTG server name and DNS name of a failover node?



The PRTG server name and DNS name of our master and failover nodes are different. Since failover node is readonly, how can we change those settings in a clustered setup?

Hello there,

The easiest way here is to shut down the current master server, so the failover switches to master. Afterwards you can make those changes. If your configurations are finished, you can start the server again and the master role will switch back.

For any further questions or issues, we're glad to help.

Kind regards,
