How many domains using Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager (VCEM)?

Scott had a VCEM question:




Anyone know how many VC domains can belong to one domain group in VCEM (latest version is fine)?





From Alex:

250 Virtual Connect domains (up to 1,000 BladeSystem enclosures and 16,000 server blades when used with Virtual Connect multi-enclosure configurations).



And some advice from Fred:

The customer should keep in mind the tradeoffs associated with the size of VC Domain Groups. These include hardware and firmware upgrade paths, time required to propagate changes across the domain group, the consideration that only one domain in a domain group can be in maintenance mode at any one time, among others. As Alex and Chris have indicated, 250 domains is the magic number overall.
