Delete a monitored device and replace with new device

Hello,

I deleted a monitored device via the iMC gui because it was replaced by another device with the same name and same ip. After that I'm not able to create a new device in iMC with the same name or ip adress. The error message is "device xxxx already exists" but in the gui there is no such device.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

I think I've seen something vaguely similar in the past when a device didn't get cleaned up properly on deletion.

Check your database to see if there's still a reference to it. If you're using MySQL, it would look like this:

mysql> use config_db;
Database changed
mysql> select dev_id,dev_ip from tbl_dev where dev_ip = '192.168.1.1';
