A  vDS created with default portgroup will not be able to accommodate 135 machines. It will only have 128 ports.

That's why it will fail.

Ah.. so a vDS defaults to 128 is this true for a Standard Switch as well?

For standard standard it will be 120 by default. Since they say they have 135 machines they would have increased the number. Any changes to port numbers will require a reboot of the host.
