Finding Probe Access Key



Dear Support Team,
I have edited my PRTG architecture (Core and Probes layout) several times, and therefore i forced to change my probe's servers during these changes. So, i have many access keys in my core server now.
How can i find out which access key is related to which probe to remove the old ones?
Thanks a lot.

Hi Hossein,

Thank you very much for your question.

A Probe Access Key can be any alphanumeric string you like. As there is no possibility of comparing the Access Keys on Remote Probe side, I usually suggest to generate new ones in case you like it clean and tidy.

Please navigate to Setup | System Administration | Core & Probes and define as many new Access Keys as there are Remote Probes.
Afterwards, copy each line into the PRTG Administration Tool of each unique Remote Probe to apply them.
