Ambiguous real server status

Under the real time statistics page, the real servers may show that status of "Ambiguous"

This is because the real server is being used on multiple virtual services,
under one of the virtual services the real server is passing the health check
but on another virtual services  the real server is failing the health check
in the screenshot below, the real server has passed the health check on port 443 but not port 80

due to this the statistics page cannot say that the real server is truly up or truly down and will show Ambiguous instead

there is a similar status under the menu real servers
please note this doesn't mean the real servers have passed the health check just that they are administratively enabled or disabled

it should read as Status Enabled
if none of the real servers are administratively disabled

it should read as Status Partially Enabled
if one of real servers are administratively disabled on one virtual service but is still enabled on another

it should read as Status Disabled
if the real servers are administratively disabled RealServer3.png
