This is still a problem under v6.02
Paul Stroud and I have run into this problems a number of times. What I know
will work is this:
(neither of these will fix it, but you should always try first)
then use ovobjprint -s | grep objectname
When you get the display back you will have the object number
ovwdbdmap -d objectnumber
Also, I have found that if you use CTRL-N (search by selection name) you can
sometimes find the object is an interface with a similar object name. I
believe this is because discovery picks up the interface AGAIN after you
have deleted it from the map(s). I then cut that object from all submaps and
that has worked sometimes.

Perhaps you have more than one map? Check with 'File...Open Map' and see
if it lists more than just the default map. Or, at the commandline, do
'ovobjprint -s <selection name>' where selection name is the name listed
you do the nvUtil. In the object info, there will be 'Maps Exist' and 'Maps
counts. Those fields would indicate that Netview thinks it is still in use
These counts can be wrong sometimes. Try 'ovmapcount -a' to get them set
correctly, then do the ovtopofix again. By the way, this is less of a
6.0.2, so if you are current, you should get the update.

does anyone know, how to solve this? I have there some nodes which won't
exist any longer. After they where shut down (to take away) they turned red
on my map's and also on the collections - all right, I started to delete
this objects (from all maps) - they are no longer as objects visible -
still all right.
But if I start a "nvUtil l" they are still in the nodelist of this
collections, and also in the nv db to find with an ovtopodump. I think
thats not right, even I run some shellscripts on objects, depending if they
are in this collection or not.
The summary what I've done:, deleted the Objects, as they where no longer
in the net, an ovtopofix out of the smit with the default parameters there.
my problem is how to threw this objects out of the system?
any tips are welcome,
