The blue box probably has no interface card underneath it.  I would
look through the object database for something with the IP address
of that interface card. And take a look at the APM topologies for
left-over bits of that node.

They were set that way by netmon, who, for some reason, is not able to
communicate with that box.  What you have is a discovery problem and the
way to
solve that is to try to figure out why netmon cannot do his job.  Modifying
the
object properties won't help because config polls will still fail in the
future.
I would start by doing an snmpwalk of that box and seeing what you get
back.

I have 2 Compaq servers installed and configured identical.  First shows up
as as up/normal (green) and the second shows up unknown (blue).  I have
deleted the second object (stopped netmon, deleted the second from maps,
ovtopofix -a, and restared netmon) and it 're-discoveres' it again as
unknown.  After a little deeper investigation, I found that the second has
the "isPC" and "isIP" Capabilities in the Object Description set to false.
I'm not sure what set them but how can I change these?

Thanks all for your help!
