Cisco routers used to also do this until an option
"snmp ifindex persist" was added to the IOS

Is there a similar option for win2k?

You do not need to lose old info, though. Just run cfgmaker, and change the target of your current config


change Target[win2k]: 33554436 at


       Target[win2k]: 16777220 at
