Hello Experts,
I am stumped on some questions regarding vmware and if someone could help that would be great
1)On a standard virtual switch what is the maximum number of virtual ports? I thought it was 1016 but apparently not
also
2)how many clustered esxi hosts can a ditributed switch span?

3) What is the system wide limit for reserved points? (I thought it was 8 ports per ESXI)

cheers

maximum number of ports in virtual switch is 1016. max number of ports accross all switches on host is 4096. virtual switch have 8 reserved ports so actually 1016 port switch have 1024 ports.
