Deploying Edge Cluster Nodes on VCF 4.4.1 fails

I try to deploy the AVN edge cluster in my newly deployed VCF 4.4.1 SDDC in the management domain.

Unfortunately the deployment of the edge nodes fails with the following error:

Why is VCF using this deprecated field and how can I fix this to deploy the edge cluster?

For anyone having the same problem:
It seems this was caused by applying the vCenter Async Patch to 7.0u3g. I reinstalled the whole environment, did not async patch the vCenter and now edge nodes are deploying successfully.
I assume the new vCenter version breaks deploying edge nodes.

I got exactly the same issue with NSX-T 3.1.9.
It took me quite a long to find out what is the problem.
Updating vCenter did not resolve the issue.

After checking logs(/var/log/syslog) I got information :

NSX 14551 FABRIC [nsx@6876 comp="nsx-manager" errorCode="MP16050" level="ERROR" reqId="91df5cab-cc06-4b00-b910-84d6ad625d55" subcomp="manager" username="admin"] Edge node f94ee3ee-0939-494c-b6c4-f969022c7fcd has 4 data networks. Only a maximum of 3 data networks is supported.

I checked the design guide for NSX-T 3.1. The NSX edge node with 4 uplinks has been supported since nsx-t ver. 3.2 .

As I used version 3.1.9 only 3 uplinks are supported.

I checked that VCF 4.4.1 is using NSX-T ver. so It could be the same issue.
