More 5.2GA woes

Here's something in 5.2GA that a lot person are complaining about. Disk logging has been eliminated from most  SMB models. Here's a snippet from the release notes;

Okay that includes pretty much every  fortigate mode from a  20 to 100.   Now here's the funny part, they installed a disk for  most of these models, but you can't even use it.

So that's a waste of a 16GB SSD disk imho

So what I found very funny and strange; "the execute disk format command" still exists. And when you execute it; "the units hangs & requires a hard reboot"

Here's some screen shot of a FWF60D

And here's what the  fnsysctl output shows me

And  here's the execution of the format command

Upon execution of the above, the unit will halt & requires a hard power-cycle to recover. I really wish disk logging would come back and if they are going to eliminate it, they should eliminate the disk and the commands from the OS.
