Anyhow, one option:
Code:
paste -sd',, \n' file
zone name DR_TMP_A_sev1_3eA vsan 200,  pwwn 50:00:09:73:f0:16:35:08,  pwwn c0:50:76:08:6e:dc:00:16

try also:
Code:
awk '$1=$1' RS="\n\n" FS="\n" OFS="," infile

Small universal variation:
Code:
awk '{$1=$1}1' RS= FS='\n' OFS=, file


--
Note: RS='\n\n' is GNU awk and mawk only... In regular awk RS can only be one character (or empty), if there are more than one, the first one gets picked
