Enabling FCoE on N7K-F132XP-15

I ran into a problem not being able to license FCoE on N7K-F132XP-15 module. I have the license file installed properly, but still getting "

ERROR:  Cannot obtain license, line card is not supported".  It seems the problem is with version of HW on this particular module 1.0. Anyone has experience with this ?

Enabling FCoE on N7K-F132XP-15

This is Nexus 7k, there is no such command "feature fcoe". I can install fcoe "install feature-set fcoe" without a problem, but to run fcoe I need to designate one of the linecards with "license fcoe module 2" command. This is where the problem happens. I know I am doing everything right; I have identical setup on another switch, but this throughs the ERROR. The only difference I see is in show verion output of the linecard. The working one is HW 1.1 the one I use is 1.0. However it is the same model of the card N7K-F132XP-15 and I don't see any mention in documentation about the hardware release differences.

Padma, I think you solved the problem. The "license fcoe module 2 force" took affect (see output below). The "force" option is hidden, so I didn't make that guess on my own. I hope from here on the card should be able to handle FCoE configuration. If you know of any other pitfalls with this particular hardware revision, please share.
