I posted this in the Asset Inventory forum, in hindsight I think this is a better place for it:

We have just finished our ZCM 10 deployment and have all our devices registered in the system. When a device becomes lost we have it set to flag rather than delete. Then from there we determine if the physical device has failed or whatever, and retire it from there.

When we do a search for lost devices we get any retired devices included in the results.

My question is, is this a bug or is it working as designed? I can't find anything in the docs to describe this situation.

Thanks in advance,
