Discovery with DeviceTemplate append "1" to every sensor`s name




Today I`ve faced with problem when tryed to apply custom DeviceTemplate. For every new sensor entry name PRTG appended "1", how can I fix it? This sensors are unique in every particular device, there is no reason for appending some numbers.

Thanx in advance
