Subject RE: physical network is in incorrect state:Disabled
Date Thu, 18 Apr 2013 02:32:38 GMT

Could you verify if UI is making the correct call to the UpdatePhysicalNetwork API with state
being passed as "Enabled " ? If yes , then the issue is something serious since Sanjay pointed
out that the db column contains state as "Disabled"  .This would mean that the API is not
setting the db column correctly in case there have been modifications to the API code.

Hi all:
          I encountered same issue. The zone installation wizard won't enable the physical
network now in master code.
