Migrate only one Device to an existing Configuration



Hello I'm facing the issue that a customer has a mobile UPS to be moved to 7 different locations. Each location has its own PRTG. Now I set up the monitoring for the UPS at one location, the same setup (only for the UPS part) should be made at all other 6 locations' PRTG, BUT the customer cannot move the UPS physically to the other locations because it's only move in emergency cases.

Is there a way to export only that UPS device from the existing PRTG and import/migratie it to another existing PRTG?

export import migrate single-device

No, I'm afraid it's not possible to migrate just certain devices or any part of the configuration between two PRTG installations. It's only possible to migrate the complete configuration to a new machine. So the only approach is to proceed a full migration and delete the sensors and devices which are not needed afterwards.

Kind Regards,
