Severity: 4-Minor


In releases before 12.1.2 it is possible to get duplicate interface indices in the SNMP user interface.


This can be confusing when accessing SNMP values.


This requires allocating guests, releasing them, allocating new guests that use some of the released resources, then, re-allocating the initial guests.


The workaround is to clear the configuration and remove the MCPD binary database.
