Erasure coding - 4.7 - Where did the option go?

We're in the process of getting an exchange server virtualized and according to Nutanix best practice, we should create a container with EC-X enabled. When I go to create the container in the PRISM gui, there's no option to enable erasure coding.

This contradicts documentation where it shows the option under "advanced options" but on my end, it's not appearing.

Couple of quick questions:

1) How many nodes are in the cluster?
2) Is the cluster set to RF3 (the cluster itself, not the container). You can see this from the CLI with:

ncli cluster get-redundancy-state
nutanix@NTNX-00XX00000000-A-CVM:w.x.y.z:~$ ncli cluster get-redundancy-state

Current Redundancy Factor : 2
Desired Redundancy Factor : 2
Redundancy Factor Status : kCassandraPrepareDone=true;kZookeeperPrepareDone=true

8 nodes (2 blocks of 4)

So you're saying if you expand "Advanced Settings" There is no option for Erasure Coding? It should be after the Replication Factor option near the top.
