tmsh create auth partition command does not generate sandbox configuration


The admin cannot properly configure sandbox-related features in the new partition created by TMSH. Automation such as using RESTful API that is based on TMSH also cannot do sandbox configuration.


no special conditions


Using command "tmsh create sys folder /partition-name" to create a new partition, make sure to add a slash before the partition-name. Also use "tmsh save sys config partitions all" to save the configuration.
