Are you using multiple maps(mapname test)? Do you have
a map named test? Have you tried it without the mapname
variable, or just used default? I have never used multiple
maps on Windows, so I'm shooting in the dark..

Are the nodes actually unmanaged or only the interfaces?
It does not sound to me like the actual device is unmanaged.
You can run "ovobjprint -s <hostname>" to see the IP Status
of the device...

OK, what am I missing?

C:\>nvmaputil.bat --mapname test --unmanage-node

C:\>ovobjprint -s p47w7u00.wau.hcscint.net

How many contexts for un-managed node does NV have?  I assume that
`Normal(2)' above indicates that the node itself remains managed?  Where
is an exhaustive list of values that IP Status can have?

Here's the rub: My client has a new NV installation; and they have a
very large network.  Currently, we have 21,000 nodes; but, this weekend,
it will double.  There is no documentation about these networks; and
very little standardization.  Most of these nodes are PC's; and we have
no mandate to manage them.  I have not yet found seed file entries to
avoid these PC's; so I need to automate un-managing them.

Yes, James makes interesting points about using the GUI; but, I
challenge any of you to select 10,000 nodes and un-manage them via GUI

What do you think?
