Nexus 9508 Dynamic Port Breakout

I'm having trouble performing a dynamic port breakout for a 9508, X9636PQ.  I want to breakout specific ports on my blade making using native 40G and others as 4x10 ports.  When I issue the command "interface breakout module 1 " I don't get the option to do a dynamic breakout.  How do I get this to work?

If you want to break out

Not sure what you mean by dynamic,  but if you want to break out individual ports use this command:

interface breakout module 1 port 1 map 10g-4x

I figured out why I can't run

I figured out why I can't run that command.   I'm not on 7x.
