      Description

      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'." ‐‐> }
