Unable to Reset Robot Device ID

So has anyone ever come across a situation where you cannot reset the robot device ID? 

We have an issue where alerts generated by this robot is sending the MDR Element ID with a CS_ID value that does not exist w/in the UIM DB. 

So for example robot1 generates an alert and in the alert properties the cs_id or the MDR Element ID is 81633 but when we search the CM_COMPUTER_SYSTEM table, this cs_id doesn't exist. This robot already went thru the discovery server remove_robot_by_CS_ID procedure and was re-recreated with a new cs_id of 121333. Yet the robot is still sending 81633.


So I tried running thru _reset_robot_id_clean_niscache callback on the controller yet the Robot_ID is still the same robot ID. I tried this a few times and nothing. I even logged onto the box, stopped Nimsoft Robot Watcher service, and deleted everything in the \nimsoft\niscache directory. Restarted the service and when I did a _get_info on the robot it was the same robot_ID??? How is that possible? 

We are opening a case but if anyone ever ran into the past if you figured this out please let me know.

Thank you,
