On re-reading the problem description, it occurred to me that you may
just be unclear about how many symbols there are supposed to be for
a given node. Routers will appear in the IP Internet submap, then again
inside one or more Network submaps, and inside the Segment submaps
as well. It may be that a router is getting deleted and rediscovered, and
you notice it when it re-appears on the IP Internet submap. This delete
and add (accompanied by events in the events display), by the way,
is also a symptom of poor name resolution. There is a discussion of this
in the Diagnostics manual.

When I have an new object discovered that is in fact a duplicate of an
object, I always check the subnetwork mask of the object. In our
this is usually the cause. If a device gets setup with the wrong mask,
show up in NetView in the areas of map placement and re-discovery.
I do have one router that continually re-discovers as a duplicate resource.
the masks are set correctly, so this is not always the problem. I plan to
problem with support when I get a chance.
Hope this helps,

Subject: Models duplicated
Anyone could explain what causes the re-appearance (re-discovery) of a
resource if it is already in database (topology and object) ?
We are observing the re-discovery of some objects besides they are already
modeled on both databases and located on some views (maps)
What could be wrong in our environment ?
