Fortigate 60D Span port disable in fortios 5.2

Hi  I am using Fortigate 60D with firmware 5.2.7,I am facing some issue like whenever I update any configuration in internal switch (Hardware Switch) its Keep asking to enter SPAN ports,but here I am using only Single Fortigate firewall and not configured any  load balancer,

I tried to disable it from console but i cannot find command "span disable"

can anyone please Help me to resolve this.

I'm also facing this problem. A new batch of 60Ds that were purchased and then downgraded to 5.2.9 have the SPAN options present when editing the internal interface. I do not desire SPAN to be present and would like to disable the feature for these units, as whenever I make a change in the GUI using FortiExplorer, even though SPAN is set to disabled, it still requires something in the source port and destination port. To enable use of the GUI I just put in DMZ and WAN2 and keep SPAN disabled, but it's an annoying 'feature' that has been added in the new range of 60D's.


What do you have under "config system virtual-switch" then "edit "internal""? SPAN would be enabled/disabled at this config in CLI.
