2020.03.24 – Juniper vMX Inside VMware ESXi Support Maximum 10 Virtual NICs

Information from internet: https://forums.juniper.net/t5/vMX/vMX-max-interface/td-p/293775

ESXi has the limitation of 10 Virtual NICs per VM, which limits the number of revenue interface to 8. (1 is used for management and 1 is used for vfp-vcp inter-connection)

I try to add more but it seems this is maximum, 8 interfaces. Other 2 are for internal communications. One is connected between RE and PFE and an other is for technical communication of engineers devices.

Active Virtual NICs when vMX RE and v MX PFE are power-on!
