I am attempting to add a VIP on our outside IP and I'm getting this error.  What I don't understand is if I look at a list of the VIP's currently configured for this port there are only 7 enabled, 8 total (1 has a status of down).  I don't understand what it means that I have insufficient virtual ports.  Our Juniper is an SSG140 and online it states that it supports 16 VIPs.  When I go through the GUI I am looking at Network - Interfaces - Interface Edit - VIP Services I only see the 8 VIPs configured.
