delete learning device in CiscoWorks

I am having an issue with Ciscoworks hanging in the learning state on a device on my network. My "About" section displays this:
LMS2.6            01 Dec 2006
QPM4.0            16 May 2008

I put the device in there using the FQDN and the IP address. After doing a nslookup on the FQDN, I noticed that the IP address was wrong. So I populated the 6 DNS servers on the network with the correct forward and reverse lookup zones and instructed the DFM to rediscover the device. I gave it a day. It found the device, but called it questioned (I forget why).

So, I thought that somehow, in my error with not making sure thatthe DNS records were correct, it had somehow tainted this addition of the decvice.

So, I tried on Friday to rediscover the device again. I came back on Monday morning to see that it hadn't progressed at all (10%) and that it has the wrong IP address (old one) smack on the top of the box (while viewing it through the rediscover/delete page).

I cannot delete this device. It does not show up in the device selector becuase it hasn't been learned yet and when I go to the Rediscover/Delete page, the option to delete it is greyed out. When I deleted it previously, I used the Add Device page because it would not show up in the device selector due to it being questioned.

Help would be good, but I also need to understand my error.

Perfect. Thank you. Worked well!!

A router is a networking device that forwards data packets between computer networks. Routers perform the "traffic directing" functions on the Internet. The most familiar type of routers are home and small office cable or DSL routers that simply pass data, such as web pages, email, IM, and videos between computers and the Internet. More sophisticated routers, such as enterprise routers, connect large business or ISP networks up to the powerful core routers that forward data at high speed along the optical fiber lines of the Internet backbone. Though routers are typically dedicated hardware devices, use of software-based routers has grown increasingly common.
