I'm new to PRTG and was tasked with finding out if we can turn on alerting for sensors in an Unknown state. Whenever our server fails sensors go into an unknown state but don't alert. If the server fails at night no one will know until someone gets in the next day. Obviously, we would like to be alerted when this happens. How would I go about setting this up to alert when sensors go into an unknown state?

Hi,

This can be done with a state trigger which you can setup in the Notification Trigger tab of every sensor, where you want to create the trigger.

You can find more information about the State Triggerhere.
