Do duplicate sensors use 2 licenses?



We have a wall board that monitors Critical servers but i've notice that if I search for the device IP it is showing up twice in PRTG. One under a wall board device group and the other under a server device group? Is this using two licenses

Dear Customer,

In this case, the device has been created twice.
As every sensor counts into the maximum number of sensors per license, duplicate sensors count as two sensors.

Kind regards,
