Migration - active directory change



I am migrating our PRTG to a new server. I have reviewed the documentation for migration. I will need to change the domain that it will connect to. I do not see any information on what the process is for changing the domain and what repercussions I can expect when I do it. How will this affect the current groups/users after the migration. What other areas of PRTG will this affect if the domain is changed?

Hi there,

If you change the domain all parts of the PRTG Core servers where the FQDN is used is effected like the remote Probe - Core connection ( if FQDN is used instead of IP). Furthermore, if you use the AD Integration in PRTG, only the local user accounts will work after the migration.
