Transfer tasks from one probe to another

You can transfer all of the tasks from one Windows probe to another Windows probe. If you are changing or upgrading servers, or adding a new probe that will perform similar tasks, you can save time by transferring those tasks to the new probe. Once transferred, you may need to make minor adjustments to the new probe. It is best to review the tasks once transferred.

You cannot transfer the tasks if the system task limit on the Probe is going to be exceeded by the transfer.

  1. Click Administration > Probes.
  2. Select the probes to transfer the tasks to and from.
  3. If you are removing a probe due to upgrading, click the Delete source probe after task transfer check box.
  4. Click Transfer Tasks.

The tasks are transferred to the selected probe. MSP N-central removes the source probe if you selected to delete it.
