RE: [nv-l] Node keeps coming back
You need to exclude the device(s) from
discovery using the seed file. Otherwise they will eventually be
re-discovered. Think about it.
By default, when you have autodiscovery
turned on, netmon will add new devices to the map whenever it finds them.
All that has to happen is for some already-discovered node to exchange
data with one of the one(s) you don't want to monitor, and that will put
an entry for it in the discovered node's ARP cache. When netmon does
a config check it will find that entry, ping the device, and add it back
to the database.
You use the seed file to both promote
discovery and to restrict it. Read about it in the books. You
can exclude individual nodes or IP ranges.

|RE: [nv-l] Node keeps coming
I’ve submitted this question back in June
and I must have stumped everyone. But, I thought I would try again
before I open a PMR.
I have a location that
we do not
I deleted everything from the GUI, etc/hosts,
and seed file. But, for some reason it keeps
reappearing on the map. I remember
a while back when I was running Netview on Windows, I had to go to the
object database and delete all related entries to that location from it.
Do, I have to do the same in Netview 7.1.3 AIX?
