I have encountered a very strange problem when configuring remote target engineId on a Catalyst 3750 switch. The switch changes the engineId, it puts a zero between the two last digits. As shown below it changes ...e166 to ...e1606. I have tried with removing the user, rebooting the switch and re-adding the user but the switch changes the engineId every time. I have configured tens of switches in the exact same way and has never come across this problem before. Does anybody know what the problem might be?
