Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Raise cluster size limit to 16 on VMware
Date Thu, 20 Dec 2012 16:36:10 GMT
As we are discussing the "cluster" limit, would be more appropriate to set this as a cluster
property - since I dont anticipate mixed clusters (such as a single cluster having VMware
4.x and 5.x), it would cover  Dave Nalley's concern? 

One still still might be - if a single cluster has multiple primary storages, how do we address
this - VMFS might have limit X, NFS might have limit Y but belong to the same cluster - least
common denominator?

I'd recommend removing any hard limits from CS and introduce a variable like "max.guest.limit"
on the Hypervisor Capabilities page.
This value could default to 8, but should the admin decide otherwise could be set to anything.

Yes - the different versions having different limits complicates things a bit.
5.1 = 32, 5.0 = 16 4.x = 8?
