Thats from OVPI admin guide, but it always failed to delete node in OVPI. I found this step from HP OpenView Forum (when I try to ask Open View Forum) and they told me to unmanaged the node first then try to delete. Here step for OVPI version 5.3:

  • Login to management console->Administration->Node_Management->Managed Nodes.
  • Select the node listed in the box and click on Edit
  • Mark it as unavailable. This will stop the node polling
  • Go to object select the node You want to delete button on file pull down menu Delete Progression or in taskbar.
