What EZSrve firmware level is being used?
Is the HTML or Harmony client being used?
Areas have no information in the device itself nor do Actions. It should be possible to remove device references from these two without need to physically communicate with the device. Running 2.6.16 when I attempt to delete a device that has an active Scene definition I get the popup question about being physically available even with an active scene definition. I am using the HTML interface.
