Issue with View and NIC connectivity

We have a View 5.2 environment with 5 ESXi hosts. We have had something new happening. We will get throughout the day a number of View desktops that go into the Problem Desktop queue. When we check them they will almost all have the same issue. They have a 169.x.x.x IP and when the look at the NIC, it says to connect on power on, but the Connected checkbox is not checked. Checking that will sometimes fix the issue, other times not and then we have to refresh them, which usually works.

I have determined that this is happening on only two of the 5 hosts. I have looked at those hosts and their network cards and the settings all look OK.  I've also checked their connections to the main switch and those look OK as well. Plus we do have a large number of desktops running on each host successfully.  I do see, on at least a couple I've looked at, a message in the Events log for the machine. It reads that there is a warning on the desktop on this host in this site that Virtual device Ethernet0 will start disconnected.

I think I have found the problem. It appears that those two hosts are running out or free network ports for the vswitch. I found some machines that were hung logging off Windows and after restarting them so that they went into a provisioned state instead of a connected state, the number of problem desktops just disappeared. I'm going to schedule a time to increase the available network ports on all of the hosts.
