To reinstall a Collector, navigate to Settings | Collectors. Expand the row for the desired Collector and click Download Collector.

Note: During the Collector reinstallation process, we check for the existence of a duplicate Collector (i.e. is this Collector already running somewhere?). Because of this, the Collector must be down for at least five minutes before a successful reinstallation can be performed.

If you are are reinstalling your Collector on a different machine, consider replacing the Collector instead to avoid downtime, as discussed in Moving your Collector to another machine.
