Checking your TXT record in the web interface causes the system to give an error. Querying for the data against a listener for the record reveals that the TXT rdata is incorrect.


Your DNS TXT records will be incorrect.


GTM enabled and a zone file with a TXT record that has multi-line rdata has been imported via the GUI into ZoneRunner.


Enter your multi-line TXT records via the web interface as single line, quote separated lines.
