"zone-name wrong type" error when running cfgadd

Hi All,

i'm doing some zoning using CLI (some issue with the GUI) with a Brocade 5300. After creating a zone, i try adding it to the zone configuration with the cfgadd "zone-name", "config-name"  but gets a wrong type error. Can anyone enlighten me?

Port 44 is a netapp controller and port 45 is hba.

B5300SW1:FID128:admin> zonecreate "testzone", "2,44; 2,45"
B5300SW1:FID128:admin> cfgadd "testzone", "B5300SW1_CFG"
"testzone" wrong type
