I have a number of cabinets that are not, as yet, populated. Some have licenses, some do not. The rack shown here has a license. the CFD system is showing air traversing the cabinet - where it does not do this for the other cabinets that we have that are empty - or any of the unused space. There doesn't appear to be anything different in the object configuration. Why is this ? How do you fix it ?

I have also seen in some setups the air flows appear to be simulated also in empty racks. I think the 3D simulations taken the racks leakage into the account/calculations and also to point out that calculations may contain approximations as well (so it may differ from the real setup).
