Someone help me with Map creation please!



I am new to PRTG and I am trying to create a custom map. I have dragged over a server icon from the 'Icon C' section. When I click on it and go to the right side and click "select object" I get a tree of my devices but cannot select the server I want it to represent. What am I missing? No matter what I do it just says "Root" as the title of the icon, and shows the sensors for the root probe not for the server I want it to represent. Thanks for any help!

Hi Daryl,

Head to the server which you want to add to the map and drag and drop the name on top of the existing Icon C Section Object which you chose. Does that work?

Kind regards,
