Nexus 7K Directed Broadcast

It is recommended good practice to disable ip directed-broadcast. I have a couple of vlans however which may require to use the WoL (Wake on LAN) feature. I decided that I would add the access-list to the ip directed-broadcast as detailed here:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/unicast/command/reference/l3_cmds_i.html#wp1611073

It says the command has been available since 4.0(1) however the parameter doesn't seem to be available in version 5.1.5.

MYN7KCR02(config)# int vlan 240

MYN7KCR02(config-if)# ip directed-broadcast ?

  <CR> 

Is there another way of removing the directed-broadcast but still allowing WoL? Is this avaialble in another version of NX-OS?

thks,

Al

The ACL keyword name is defiantly available in 6.1.1

have a look:

c7010-(config-if)# ip directed-broadcast ?
