PRTG Cluster move primairy node to new server



hi all,

We have a PRTG cluster running on 1 physical node and a virtual machine. Primary is running on the physical server and I want to migrate that one to another physical node but I have no idea how to migrate an cluster-node.

Can you please help me with the neccesary steps ?

thanks Dave

Hi Arne,

The steps for a secondary node are the same as for a primary node ? because not our secondary node will be migrated but our primary node.

a master node is migrated like a normal PRTG core server.

If the IP changes, please edit the cluster table after migration (PRTG Setup / System Administration / Cluster).
