Do we need install agent for cloned server


We want to clone a server which has Host and Java agent installed, do we have to install new agent for the cloned server?

As long as the new cloned server is in the same network zone and can connect to the same collector as the previous server, you should not need to reinstall or edit the agent configuration as it would be carried over with the copy.

The new server's agent will have the same agent name and connection information as the older server, therefore, will connect to the same agent group, collector, and system profile as the old server. This should be considered to make sure that these configurations are still applicable to the new server. If it's still part of the same application and environment, you don't need to change anything, but for example, you are cloning a prod server to test in non-production, you would want to update the configurations to connect to your non-production AppMon environment.
