Hi Paul

Thank you for the quick reply..

I followed your instructions, at first with no luck - the disappeared node did not show up (I only have 1 map).
But I noticed that the node was in the seedfile, but had the '$' prefix for SNMP polling.
I removed the '$' sign, restarted netmon, pinged the node, and it instantly reappeared on our map..

So your answer helped me rediscovering the deleted nodes - thanks!

Do you have more than 1 map. If so, the device will still reside
in the database. You can tell if you have more than one map
by running ovwls. If you do not have more than one map, you
might want to run a database cleanup:

ovmapcount -a
ovtopofix -A(this will require you stop netmon)

Then before restarting netmon, make sure the device is in
the seedfile and then restart the daemons. I would think it
would reappear at that point.

And the "Node Down Deletion Interval" does not affect
unmanaged nodes.
