broadcast-limit setting on 5406zl

I have all of my 5300-series switches configured with the broadcast-limit global command. I tried adding the same setting to my new 5406zl's, but I'm getting an "invalid input" error. According to the Management and Configuration Guide, on page 10-13 it states that this command should work. Is this a bug? Will it be fixed in a future software release?

Re: broadcast-limit setting on 5406zl

From memory I think you need to go into the actual interface and set the broadcast limit per port. You also need to specify the percentage of broadcast traffic to be allowed.

e.g.

5400(config)# int a1
5400(eth-a1)# broadcast-limit 10

I believe the manual is currently incorrect.
