Thread-topic: [nv-l] Removing devices
Sorry, I was not clear.  I'm not trying to remove a device, I'm trying
to remove a previously discovered interface that is no longer on the
device.  What is the recommended way of doing this?

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