Actually, my experience has shown that if you have an AD interface that is
either reconfigured or removed, NetView will not delete that interface with
either a scheduled poll or a demand poll, it MUST be manually deleted and
rediscovered to get the correct IP and status.  It will however add additional
interfaces to the device submap for the new IP of that interface though!  I
have seen multiple Serial0/0/0 interfaces for example each with a different IP,
all AD.  Is this possibly a bug in my configuration James?  I had always
assumed that this was not a bug, that NV basically ignored AD interfaces.
