Dublicate sensors on auto-discovery




I have problem with auto-discovery. On every run it founds and creates sensors for interfaces that are already discovered, nut not for all switch ports just for few of them. Last run it duplicated 5 sensors on 96 port switch. All of our switches are Cisco. We had try SNMP compatibility options for port identifications (Automatic or ifalias).

Here is list of Interface number values of duplicated senor on interface: 1. 33866754:GigabitEthernet 0/0 2. 33866754:GigabitEthernet 0/0 3. 33866754: 4. 33866754:. 5. 33866754: 6. 33866754: 7. 33866754: 8. 33866754: 9. 33866754:u

My PRTG version is Do you have any ideas how to fix this?

Best Regards, Stoyan Konsulov
