I still find the text confusing from a stylistic point of view.
What about this:

                 "The administrative state for this entity. A value 
		  of 'notSupported' means that this entity is unable
                  to report administrative state. 
		  
		  Setting this object to 'notSupported' will result
		  in an 'inconsistentValue' error. For entities that
		  do not support administrative state, all set
		  operations will result in an 'inconsistentValue' 
		  error."
