OK, so netmon must have found these objects once.  But let's see if I understand
what you said erlier.  You can do a command line ping on the interface and it
works, and you can do a command line snmpget on the node and it works, but they
are still blue?   Is that right?  What happens if you try a ping or demand poll
from the GUI?

James -

The node objects were discovered via seedfile and placed into
specific collections based on SNMPObjectID. The majority of
unknowns are Cisco Cat's and Router's and Synoptics 3xxx hubs.
The objects are located in both the collection and segment
submaps. Upon drilling down into the objects I receive an
interface map with at least one interface that is also blue or
unknown. The object description for most nodes lists the
Hostname, Interface status (UNKNOWN), System Descrip., System
Location, etc.
