Hi John. The number of physical NICs that the VEM supports is the same as VMware, which is 32. A port-profile (be it of type vEthernet or Ethernet), the total is 2,000 per VSM instance. Hope that answers your questions. Thanks,
My customer is asking me why the uplink profile on one 1000v has 14 ports, while another one has 84. Wondering how these values are generated.
Can you ask your customer to provide the output on what he is asking regarding the ports? It sounds like they are referring to the port-profiles of type vEthernet, which are for Virtual Machines on the ESX/ESXi servers. If you can provide that, it maybe become clearer on what they are asking. Thanks,
Did you manage to get an answer about the 'Total ports' question (on the vCenter Networking tab) ?
I have the same issue for two Uplink groups on the same N1k (one is showing 60, the other just 4) and like you I do not understand what is defining the 'Total ports' appearing on the vCenter Networking tabs.
FYI, I have not changed the 'max-ports' value of 32 appearing under the "show port-profile" on the N1k.
Thanks in advance.
