hwmgr show stale value

Hi All
I am having lots of stale value in my hwmgr configuration, I would like to remove these value from the database. As I understood these value degrading the performance of the system.
I tried following command but didn't work...

#> hwmgr -scan scsi -bus 5 then bus 8 and also refresh the database but these value is not going. I can not delete the HWID for this purpose becuase system is in production.

HWID: DEVICEID HOSTNAME TYPE SUBTYPE OWNER PATH FILE VALID PATH
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
265: 162 alpha3 disk none 2 14 dsk127 [6/2/83]

WWID:01000010:6000-1fe1-4942-4d20-0000-0000-30a1-5642


BUS TARGET LUN PATH STATE
------------------------------
5 2 83 stale
5 3 83 stale
5 1 83 stale
8 7 83 stale
8 2 83 stale
8 0 83 stale
8 1 83 stale
5 0 83 stale
6 2 83 valid
6 4 83 valid
6 0 83 valid
10 2 83 valid
10 1 83 valid
10 0 83 valid

Any idea ?
thanks in advance

Re: hwmgr show stale value

you can only remove stale devices not stale pathes:

hwmgr -delete component -id < xxx >
hwmgr -scan scsi
dsfmgr -m

Re: hwmgr show stale value

from hp support, it is possible to remove stale path, with the following commands :

hwmgr -refresh scsi
hwmgr -refresh comp

it works only for Tru64 5.1A PK4 and above.
i don't know prerequisites for 5.1B.
