Hi there guys,

does anybody know if it is possible to have 2 EDGE VMs over the same NVDS?

Can you explain what you mean when you say "over the same N-VDS". Is it the N-VDS of the Edge VM itself or is it connected to the N-VDS of the host it's on?

Do you mean host N-VDS or the nested N-VDS within the Edge VMs?

Either way, this is possible.

If you are referring to connect two Edge VMs to the same N-VDS, yes you can. Actually you can grow in an Edge Cluster up to 8 Edges.

And i also do not know if there is a limit of Edges per N-VDS

not nested, assume that you have physical ESXi hosts and a cluster of them you are ok from resources, then how many EDGE VM are possible to be connected over same NVDS or VDS?

that is the maximum system-wide but it not specifically enough to say that 320 EDGE VMs can be connected using the same Distributed Switch, probably I'm overthinking the s...stuff I need to sleep a bit....
