Check the snmpwalk of the device and make sure the devices are actually removed from the mib. There are a number of devices that will not update the mib properly.

Hello All:

If a device is already in Netview and working, and a site engineer removes a subnet on the device, Netview alarms and shows the subnet as down. This is correct behaviour

When Netview next demand polls it should see that the configuration of the device has changed and remove the interface from the topology (this is how HPOV works)

Netview doesn't do this reliably, This morning working I have removed 3 interfaces that were deleted from the Routers over the weekend but had not cleaned out of Netview.

Clearing the Cache and re demandpolling the device did not clean the interface entry out of the database either.
Deleting the interface out on the map does work.

Is there a better way of getting the devices to auto update on the demand poll.
