Netview 6.0.2, Framework 3.7.1, Aix

We only have 1 map (default).

I unmanaged a server from R/W default map. I then  brought down the server
and it turned "red" on the read only map. when i brought  up the server it
turned "green". It was still "wheat" in the read/write map.  When we
refresh the read only map, it turned "wheat". Why is netmon still  polling
somthing even though we tell it to unmanage it?

on the IP internet map one of the location  container is we drill down,
several more loc. containers. 1 is yellow the rest  are green. we drill
down on a green one. all location containers are green. we  drill on a
location that is green it contains several ip network icons that  are green
and one network is "white" unreacheable, underneath it a router  is red.
Since netmon is not polling this router how can we know that it is still
down? Is this the way its supposed to work? How are we supposed to know
that  that router is down? Shouldn't the parent be yellow?
