Environment

NCM 7.5 and later

Cause 

The script parser in NCM 7.5 has been modified and is case sensitive and ifIndex was changed to IfIndex (start with an uppercase letter I) in scope of NCM schema .

Resolution

Every instance of  @cdpEntry.ifIndex within Config Change Template(s) has to be replaced has with @cdpEntry.IfIndex.
