SDA platform scaling limits question

Madura Malwatte

Hypothetically if my main fabric site has SDA platforms which supports up-to 64 VNs and then I decide to bring online a remote site with FiAB using say 9200's (which only supports up-to 4 VNs), what happens here if I have more than 4 VNs configured at my main site? I assume the 9200s at the remote sites will not be able to function as FiAB, and instead I will have to use either 3850's or 9300's which support at least 64 VNs?

Also for the edge node scale table when it says "Endpoints", is this the total endpoints supported within a fabric site for a particular edge node platform? What happens when this limit is passed?

@Madura Malwatte , The Catalyst 9200 does not support FiaB functionality.

The endpoints are those that are connected to that particular Fabric Edge

Fabric in Box - required Minimum Cat 9300 and DNA/Networkadvantage License.

As mentioned cat 9200 only can be edge switches (used as Layer 2)
