Use the removeBaseAddressAlias command to remove the specified alias to the entry point with the given base address

The alias must be defined locally for this entry point only. Aliases defined at the network node level must be removed using the removeNodeAlias command.

The removeBaseAddressAlias command allows you to remove incorrect or outdated aliases from the system. Although it does not undo the removal of duplicate artifacts caused by the complementary addBaseAddressAlias command, any new discoveries for the base address and the ex-alias will again be treated as separate entities.

See Resolving Discovery Issues, for a discussion of the use of this command in resolving discovery issues.
