Well I solved my problem but I am not sure how. I attempted to rediscover
several times with no luck. I finally started doing a locate in the GUI for
the IP address and lo' and behold the subnet showed up with no interfaces. I
navigated down to it and it turned green just as I was about to navigate
back up the chain of blue icons. I am clueless why it took two days to find
the router again and coincidently it came back in as I was driving down the
map. <shrug> Sorry if I led ya down a goose chase.

use ovobjprint -s | grep <devicename> and you will see interfaces in the
database that belong to the box you deleted from the map. Netview deletes
the node as soon as it rediscovers because the database has those interfaces
already. I consider this a bug personally. The only recourse I know of is to
use the <unsupported> ovwdbdmap -d <objectnumber> command. Good luck. I have
a router in this condition right now too. I tried ovtopofix -A and
ovmapcount -a as my usual attempts to fix it after deleting the interfaces.
No change.

Hello Everyone.

NetView for UNIX 6.0.2 w/ IY22983 netmon fix on AIX 4.3.3 w/ ML 9.

NetView is having some trouble dealing with the Cisco Content Switch
(Arrowpoint apCS50). Both TAC and local Cisco people have told us that VIPs
do not reliably respond to ICMP polling. So I unmanaged the VIP interface
objects on each CCS. 

I then decided to use SNMP status polling for the CCS. I added the $node
entry to the netmon.seed file. I removed them from the map (a big mistake).
NetView rediscovered them but deleted them as soon as I demand polled one or
the other switch. NetView complained of a duplicate address. 

Can anyone out there share their technique for managing these things?

Thanks in advance!
