The user is unable to create gtm topology records using iControl REST.


The iControl REST POST command fails with the following error: 'Topologies must specify both regions: ldns: server:'.


This occurs when a user issues an iControl REST POST command for a gtm topology record.


Use TMSH, iControl SOAP, or the GUI to create gtm topology records.

Fix Information

You can now create gtm topology records using iControl REST. Please be sure to format the gtm topology oid string using the following rules: 1) Use only a single space between each item in the topology string. 2) Use a fully-pathed name for datacenter, isp, region, and pool objects. For example: "ldns: subnet server: datacenter /Common/DC".
