Either do one of two things:

1.  Exclude these PCs in the nvseedfile for discovery.
2.  If they have SNMP agents on the PCs, change the community string to
something other than public.


P.S.  I would recommend step 1 as the one to go with.

        NV/OV Gurus,

        We have a situation  where we do not want to manage a bunch of PCs.
We have
        them unmanaged.

        Netview is changing the status of these PCs back to "Managed" and is
        starting to generate Node Down events for these nodes.  I have been
        unmanaging these PC's regularly, and Netview seems to be flipping
the status
        and I am getting tons of node down events for these PCs

        Did anyone encounter a situation like this?? How did you keep
Netview from
        managing certain devices?

        Wonder why Netview insists on managing certain devices.

        Happy Holidays,
        Kiran Goparaju
