You encounter an error message: This platform does not support DoS hardware capability, which is needed to disable this sys db variable.


Error is logged but it is unclear that the error means that the db variable Dos.ForceSWDos is set to false, but the device does not have hardware DoS capability.


-- This can be encountered during system start, or when loading a UCS file. -- The error is logged if the DB variable Dos.ForceSWDos is set to false on a platform that does not support hardware DoS capability.
