Configurations in PRTG

Hi Experts,

we use PRTG to monitor the network / devices.
The vms were being monitored under the hosts.
so each vm host within vcenter had a bunch of servers
as soon as we do work on the network and the servers migrate to another host, netmon starts sending notifications that everything is down basically.

i am trying to re-design it so netmon is monitoring the vms no matter where they land directly.
what is the best way to go about it?>


thank you in advance

Maybe not a great answer or the correct answer, but we monitor our servers like they were physical, so they are not monitored through vcenter or the host

The nice thing about the vcenter sensor is that you get a lot of stats, but in our case it didn't have a few we wanted such as monitoring AD, iis or SQL for example.  So either you use that and another sensor or just monitor separately.   I would be curious to hear other thoughts, short of building custom sensors to add them to the VM sensor.
