This is a device that was physically disconnected from location; I then I took it out of etc/hosts and seed file.  So, you are saying that I need to also exclude  in seed file, even though it was deleted from all those areas?


I remember this happening it when I was in Windows platform and I had to go manually to the database and delete all entries related to that node.

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 back




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 longer monitor.   So, 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?
