    man check your zoneremove and donedelete descriptions

    my concept is

    # cfgremove “testfcsw1_cfg”,”TEST_Zone”
    # zonedelete “TEST_Zone”
    # cfgsave
    # cfgenable testfcsw1_cfg


    # zoneremove “TEST_Zone”,”1,3″
    # cfgsave
    # cfgenable testfcsw1_cfg

      First one you mentioned is to delete zone from cfg and second one is to remove a member from zone. My description says it right.
