Interface ve command not available on VDX6720

I'm trying to configure ve for our vlans but I'm not seeing the command option. Below is what I see:

VDX6720(config)# rbridge-id 1

VDX6720(config-rbridge-id-1)#

Possible completions:

  do       Run an operational-mode command

  exit     Exit from current mode

  fabric   Allows to configure fabric related parameters

  help     Provide help information

  no       Negate a command or set its defaults

  pwd      Display current mode path

  top      Exit to top level and optionally run command

What version of NOS are you running on the VDX 6720 ?

Here are some details on the interface ve command from the Command Reference Manual :

You need to be on NOS 3.0.0 or later to be able to configure a VE interface .

From the NOS 3.0.0 Admin Guide : A virtual Ethernet (Ve) interface is a logical port associated with a Layer 3 Virtual LAN (VLAN) configured on a Layer 3 switch.
