You are talking about Verify procedure to hand shake with peer to
know if remote support IET fragmentation and re-assembly? If yes,
this manual mode of provisioning is required as well. So one
optional parameter needed is enable-verify. If that is not enabled
then device assumes the remote is capable of fragmentation and
re-assembly.
