Symptoms

When creating a virtual server in the GUI with an IPv6 destination address and a port list (shared object) or a source address list (shared object), the system returns an error similar to: 0107028f:3: The destination (0.0.0.0) address and mask (ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff) for virtual server (/Common/vs03-v6_dns) must be be the same type (IPv4 or IPv6).

Impact

Unable to create/modify virtual server.

Conditions

-- Creating or updating a virtual server. -- Attempting to use an IPv6 Host address with a Port List shared object or a Source Address List shared object.

Workaround

Create an Address List shared object with the IPv6 address in it and use that instead of the Host address.

Fix Information
