How to enable 40G ports (53 & 54) on FSW-1048E?

Hi all.
As per subject - how do I need to proceed, to be able to use the two 40G ports (53 & 54) on a FSW1048E?
In the GUI I see only up to port 52 and I would like to use 53-54 for ISL between two identical FSW1048E (running 6.0.3).
Thanks,
Flavio.

OK - from the FSW 6.0.2 CLI reference guide, on pages 90-91:
 
config switch phy-mode
set port-configuration <default | disable-port54 | disable-port41-48 | 4x100G | 6x40G>
set port<number>-phy-mode {1x40G | 4x10G}
end
 
So far I've been able to at least see the port LEDs light up on ports 53&54, but in the GUI they're still not appearing.

Flavio, did you get this to work?  I am experiencing the same issue.

Hi Rich.
In the GUI I still don't see ports 53-54 and I'm running FOS 6.0.6 on the FGT

from what i heard this should be fixed in FortiOS 6.2
 
FortiOS 6.0 doesnt understand you can configure to 6 x 40gig ports. The switch does, but the gate doesnt.

Bump up to 6.2.3 when your next maintenance window comes along. Otherwise you are stuck with doing it via the CLI.

I would like to use ports 53 and 54 of my FortiSwitch FSW-1048 as MCLAG-ICL

I am running version 6.2.3 and my ports are Grayed out.
I have used below commands to make the ports available in cli, however GUI is still not showing up.
 
config switch phy-mode
set port-configuration 6x40G
set port53-phy-mode 4x10G
set port54-phy-mode 4x10G
end
 
I have then used below commands for MCLAG-ICL
 
config switch trunk
edit "E48T400000807-0"
set mode lacp-active
set auto-isl 1
set mclag-icl enable
set members "port53.1" "port53.2" "port53.3" "port53.4"
next
end
 
In FortiGate 100F v6.2.3, under Managed FortiSwitch, I am still not seeing a line between TWO COREs. 
 
Any suggestions, thoughts?  Keep in mind that ports 53,54 are Grayed in GUI.
