We've seen this on Windows NT4.0 servers.  Sometimes, for perfmon objects,
the OID changes on a reboot.  We never sorted it out, just gradually stopped
monitoring NT server performance.  We _were_ hoping, though, that the move
to WIN2k would give us more stable OIDs.

Thanks for letting us know that even cisco did this, Daniel.

Do any of the winnt experts out there care to comment?

Subject: [mrtg] Win2K Interface ID changes on reboot

Anyone else seeing this?  Everytime I reboot my Win2K Advanced Server
the ID number of the NIC changes and my logs/charts/images/etc.. fail to
work until I re-run cfgmaker and get the new ID.

It has become really annoying because I lose all history when this

I am running standard MS SNMP service for Win2K and using MRTG 2.9.6.

My interface ID changes from to on
my last reboot, WTF?
