      hi all

       

      weve started receiving the following alert and I'm not sure why this is happening... I cant find much info about this.

      when i look at the alert details it does not say which ports are affected...

      ive checked the logs as well on a host and couldnt see anything in there either

       

      im a bit stumped as to why this is happening... the security profile on the hosts has not been changed recently, its been static

       

       

       

      has anybody seen this before?

       

      is there a way I can see whats being blocked on the DVS ?

       

      let me know if you need any more info...

       

       

       

       

      thanks!
