Flexible Netflow on WS-C4500X-16

I have been trying to setup Flexible Netflow on our WS-C4500X-16. We have configure this as a L3 switch using VRF lite and BGP.

When applying the flow monitor command on the physical interface, I get "% Flow Monitor: Flow Monitor 'NFAmonitor' - Incompatible traffic type: Record has Undetermined, monitor applied with IPv4" error.

Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Config below.

flow record NFArecorder
 match ipv4 tos
 match ipv4 protocol
 match ipv4 source address
 match ipv4 destination address
 match transport source-port
 match transport destination-port
 match interface input
 match interface output
 collect timestamp sys-uptime first
 collect timestamp sys-uptime last
flow exporter NFAexporter
 description NMS-NET-PRD1
 source Loopback79
 transport udp 2055
flow monitor NFAmonitor
 exporter NFAexporter
 record NFArecorder

Did you ever resolve this? Do you have to get a daughter card on the 4500X to enable flexible netflow?
