    Posted Jul 13, 2021 11:04 PM
    Hello All
    I am running the AOS-CX Virtual 10.07.0010 in Eve-NG 4.0.1-50-PRO. I am curious if anyone knows the max number of ports that can be configure on each individual node. In the older version I was running before (10.06.0110) at the CLI when I tried to go to interface 1/1/21 for example I got the message that it was an invalid interface, or something like that. I think 1/1/9 was the max I could use. So in Eve-NG I could configure 10, 1/1/1-1/1/9 and the management port and everything seemed to work. In the new AOS-CX Virtual 10.07.0010, at the CLI I can go to int 1/1/50 and it works. I think I can go to 1/1/54 before I get the invalid interface message. But If I configure the node with 25 interfaces in Eve-NG and power it on. Passing traffic is hit or miss. So I am thinking that the OVA only has like 9 or 10 interfaces, like the older version, but the OS is configured with more? Anyone know the number? Anyone have any idea if they are planning to increase this down the road?

    Thanks for your attention to this.

    The simulator current state is 10 usable interfaces including MGMT. Any update to this will let the community know :-)

    Yes with release 10.07, there is now 10 interfaces (max on vmware...)

    Are there any plans to expand this? This makes the CX simulator impractical to use in labs where you want to model an actual network.

    Hi Garrett,

    I think not... (it is not possible on VM simulator to have more interface...)

    I don't believe that is true. Qemu VMs can be deployed with many more interfaces.

    you can add more. I think they will appear in the CLI and in the GUI, but no traffic will be handled by these additional interfaces (ie. even LLDP will not work).

    Yes but only the first 10 interfaces will forward traffic.
