Remote Probe only connects to the master node



I know the question, if remote probes can connect to all servers in a cluster, has been asked a lot of times, but the most recent knowledgebase entry about this topic was already two years old. I have a single failover cluster and I just installed my first remote probe. It successfully connected to the master node. The problem now is, that this probe appears in the webinterface of the failover node, but shows status "disconnected". Whe I open the admin tool of the remote probe, I do not see the "Cluster Connectivity" option. What did I do wrong?

Thank you for your message.

You can configure remote probes to send data to all cluster nodes, this is possible.

Regarding the Cluster Connectivity option, you will find it in the probe settings on the Master node. Please, have a look to the manual for more information: https://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/probe_settings#probe_admin
