Date Mon, 09 Oct 2017 08:29:00 GMT
Rohit Yadav created CLOUDSTACK-10107:

             Summary: VMware VM fails to start if it has more than 7 nics
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-10107
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
            Reporter: Rohit Yadav
            Assignee: Rohit Yadav
             Fix For: Future,

The maximum number of NICs that a vSphere based virtual machine is 10 virtual NICs.  However a 
CloudStack created Instance cannot start if there are greater than 7 NICs attached.  More that 7 NICs can be 
attached via CloudStack if the VM is already running it is only the start process that fails if more than 7 NICs 
have been attached. 
If a VM has greater that 7 NICs a management server log message similar to the following is created: 
StartCommand failed due to Exception: java.lang.RuntimeException
Message: Invalid configuration for device '10'.
java.lang.RuntimeException: Invalid configuration for device '10'.
The vpxd.log on the vCenter shows: 
‐‐> Result:
‐‐> (vim.fault.InvalidDeviceSpec) {
‐‐>    faultCause = (vmodl.MethodFault) null,  
‐‐>    faultMessage = <unset>, 
‐‐>    property = "unitNumber",  
‐‐>    deviceIndex = 10
‐‐>    msg = "Invalid configuration for device '10'."
‐‐> }
