VMs in a state of limbo

Hi,

 

I have a datacenter covered with Windows Datacenter licenses for the VMs.
The report "license tracking per computer" is showing the coverage.

The situation is:

If machine XY is running it is covered --> fine.
If machine XY is powered off it is no longer covered. In the "Information" tab of this machine there is no longer the linked host computer shown. 
--> All VMs not running are in a state of limbo.

 

This circumstance makes the overview hard if you have hundreds of VMs, some of them will always turn on/off.

Is this adesired behavior ? I am asking me, why the link to the host computer is lost after a VM is turned off? 

 

Thank you

Florian
