Can we interconnect two PRTG instances and share sensors ?



Dear Support,

We intend to have one of our company, using another licensed installation of PRTG.

To avoid duplicating monitoring, we would like to share some of our sensor within their installation.

What are the possibilities here ?

Not sure that remote probe apply...

Hello there,

In short, no, it is not possible to merge confgurations from two individual PRTG installations, see also here for example.

What would work, is migrating the configuration (file "PRTG Configuration.dat") from one server to the other and then remove the stuff you don't need in the other installation.

Kind regards,
