Computer Detected without Symantec Client Software

We have just upgraded our SEPM to v12.1 and since then we keep getting an alert saying "Computer Detected without Symantec Client Software" for a computer that does not exist on the network. We keep getting about 15-20 of these alerts a day for the same computer (IP address) but it is not on the network.
Any ideas?

I was getting same and found that this is the console of one of the servers.
Can you ping this IP? is it in your subnet?

No I cannot ping the address which is in the same subnet. I also checked the MAC address and cannot find that in the DHCP either.

By the way, SEP is not clearing the unknown IPs even if it no longer exists.
I remember there is a way to reset detected computers without SEP.

That would be very useful if you could let us know how to do that.

I checked the MAC address and it came up with AMERICAN POWER CONVERSION CORP. So looks like a UPS someone on the network. How do I stop SEPM from throwing out this alert?
