You don't have admin right to the foundary to see all the commands. You need to have admin rights to get the correct output when you issue ? and use config t.

It appears the switch may be set to not authorize you to perform the full range of commands.

If you are logged into a Foundry switch at enable mode (# prompt as shown above) and no restrictions configured, you should be able to enter configuration mode with the "configure term" command you tried above.

Perhaps you could try the Web UI if that's enabled.
