Symptoms

Using the string returned in the options_seq field by the iControl Management.Zone.get_zone method in the Management.Zone.set_zone_option method can result in an 'Invalid zone option syntax...' error.

Impact

Strings returned in the options_seq field by the iControl Management.Zone.get_zone method cannot be used in the Management.Zone.set_zone_option() method unless they are reformatted consistent with the format expected by the Management.Zone.set_zone_option() method.

Conditions

Use of the string returned by the iControl Management.Zone.get_zone method in the Management.Zone.set_zone_option() method.

Workaround

Use the GUI to set the zone options. Alternatively, modify the strings returned in the options_seq field by the iControl Management.Zone.get_zone method to a format consistent with those expected by the Management.Zone.set_zone_option() method. For example, modify options_seq to have each option as a single string (rather than the masters string, which is returned as 3 separate options strings).

Fix Information

The iControl Management.Zone.get_zone_v2() method returns a value in the options_seq field in a format that is consistent with the format expected by the Management.Zone.set_zone_option() method.
