    Maximum number of ESXi 5.5 Hosts that can connect to a datastore

    vmproteau Expert

      I have seen conflicting information about the number of ESXi 5.5 Hosts that can be connected to a datastore. Can anyone confirm the true supported maximum for ESXi 5.5. Our design will change depending on which is correct.


      (1)  In the configurations maximum document it shows the number to be 64 (unchanged from 5.0) http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vsphere5/r55/vsphere-55-configuration-maximums.pdf

      (2) In the vSphere 5.5 online documentation center, I see the number 128 used. https://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-55/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsphere.storage.doc%2FGUID-52DC7277-5321-4BB5-86B4-D73D258F6529.html
