Can't add 5308xl VLAN secondary ip address

When I try to add a secondary ip address to any of the VLANs on my 5308xl, I see something like this:

HP ProCurve Switch 5308XL(vlan-2)# ip address secondary
Invalid input: secondary

Do I need to enable something to allow multinetting? I have done this extensively on our Cisco routers, what am I missing here?

I'm running E.06.03.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Can't add 5308xl VLAN secondary ip address

I can answer my own question, hopefully to the benefit of others on the forum. Taking a close look (belatedly) at the Releases Notes, I see that the syntax for assigning secondary addresses changed in E.06.01 (p. 17 of the E.07.21 Release Notes). That would do it...
