Dear tech team, I want to migrate my core probe installation from a host to another due to our network changes. I want to export my vm to an OVF file and then deploy my machine to the new Esx host and then change the ip address. assuming that i took into account of changing snmp-server addresses in my devices , there any special consecrations I should be aware of? thank you in advance.

Just make sure you take into account any special networking for firewalls or routing with the old IP, and change it for the new IP.

Past that, no. PRTG will just pick back up and keep going once you put it where it's going.
