FOS 3.2 dont allow user creation

Unfortunately we still have one old SAN Switch with FOS 3.2 and we have a need to create one user.

however commands on san switch reflect Syntax error as below, any help would be approcaited:

 

switch:admin> userConfig --show
syntax error
switch:admin> userConfig
Usage: userConfig
--show [username] [-a] [-b]: display current account information
--add <username> -r <rolename> [-d <description>]:
add an new account
--delete <username>: delete an existing account
--modify <username> <-r <rolename> | -d <description> | -e <yes | no>>:
modify existing account attributes
--recover recover accounts from backup
switch:admin> userConfig --show admin
syntax error
switch:admin> userConfig --show admin -a
syntax error
