Which two statements are true about this configuration?

An administrator has been tasked with creating a vSphere Standard Switch (vSS) for an ESXi host with the following specifications:

1. 116 virtual machines will be connected to the switch,
2. The switch wall have four uplinks configured for port-based load balancing.
3. The switch will act as a secondary heartbeat network for HA.

Which two statements are true about this configuration? (Choose two)

The configuration requires a Service Console Port

The configuration requires a VMkernel Port

A vSS created with default settings in the vSphere Client is insufficient for this configuration

A vSS created with 128 ports using the vSphere CLI is sufficient for this configuration


ESXi didn’t have Service Console port

A vSphere standard switch models a physical Ethernet switch. The default number of logical ports for a standard switch is 120. You can connect one network adapter of a virtual machine to each port. Each uplink adapter associated with a standard switch uses one port. Each logical port on the standard switch is a member of a single port group. Each standard switch can also have one or more port groups assigned to it. For information about maximum allowed ports and port groups, see the Configuration Maximums documentation.
