Disconnected ports showing with red minus in DCFM

We are running DCFM 10.4.4, and I have a number of ports, on various switches where servers have been shutdown and disconnected, that the port, rather than showing nothing, in the dropdown panel (where you expand to see the devices logged into the switch), they are showing a red minus and the nickname or wwpn (when the nickname has been deleted).

Why is this happening, and what do I need to do to correct this?

Hi,

I assume that you have Track Changes feature enabled in DCFM.

If a device disapear from a port it will be reported and marked in DCFM. Now you can accept the changes and a report will be shown to you with all changes which you can confirm.

I hope this helps,

Andreas
