New Virtual Interface

I have a FastIron 1500 and I'm tryign to create a new VE.

There are currently 2 setup already since we had it installed 6 years ago. However I can't seem to create a new one:

BR-telnet@FOUNDRY(config)#int ve 4
Error - invalid virtual ethernet interface number.

Is the error message I get

I think I'm doing something stupid, any help appreciated.
