We are running HP Systems Insight Manager 5.2 with SP2 - Windows

We are about to decomm a server, but I don't know how to delete it completely from the system!

Does anyone know? Or once the server is off will it disappear?

It is currently in maintenance mode.

I realize that this is "hijacking" a thread...but I have a similar question and the suggested solution above does not totally solve the problem.  If the deleted IP address is "re-used" on a new server, the monitored item is reincarnated as the old server name & info...not the new.

HPSIM *appears* to retain some info under the covers that comes back to haunt you if the IP address is recycled.  How do you *completely* get rid of all references to a given server so that a discovery will find the new server with its different information?
