Hello there,

Auto-Discovery will not add devices that are not pingable as a positive ping response is usually a must before adding a device.

It might work when creating a copy of "Device Generic Ping.odt", which is the generic ping template and save an adjusted copy of it where you remove requires="ping" (you can edit the file with a simple text editor).

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hello,

Alright i have done this, but nothing better, i can't watch device with ping sensor e ven they don't work... I removed "requires="ping"".

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
  <devicetemplate id="ping" name="Ping+" priority="160">
    <check id="ping" meta="ping"/>
    <create id="pingsensor" kind="ping" displayname="Ping">
      <createdata>
        <priority>
          5
        </priority>
        <timeout>
          2
        </timeout>
        <interval>
          30
        </interval>
      </createdata>
    </create>
  </devicetemplate>

Hi there,

Ok, I've tested it on my end, it simply does not work, no matter how, PRTG will simply refuse to add devices when Ping fails, so adding the devices manually is the only option, I'm afraid.

Kind regards,

Erhard
