FYI, after ovwdbdelete of objects and the restart of netmon, the existing REMOVED objects are still in the data base (same object IDs) and the nodes have still not been discovered. I'm clueless on next steps. Other than getting a netmon trace, anyone have any ideas? I have about half a dozen nodes that discovery just isn't happening and all aspects of SNMP/ping access appear correct. The devices are a mix of routers, and AIX and Solaris.

Greetings, I Just got off the phone with support and I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this. I had certain nodes in my seed file that I could not seem to discover. After the usual recovery efforts (ovtopofix -A and ovmapcount -a and netmon tracing etc) support had me remove using ovwdbdelete 2493 objects stuck with the "REMOVED" label on them when I did an ovobjprint.
As my discovery is nothing fancy, and my network is only medium size, I 'm wondering if anyone else is seeing this.
I wrote a PERL program to validate everything in my seed file was discovered correctly and these nodes came up as passing the checks for DNS, pingability, SNMP access but were not in topology. So, this could have been going on a while but I just haven't noticed.
