Virtual Connect (VC) 4.01 Min/Max bandwidth and what OS sees?

Aram had some Virtual Connect questions:

I need some clarifications around the Min/Max functions in 4.01.

 

When you set a Min and Max bandwidth on a fNIC.

 

What speed does the OS report for the NIC: ESX, Windows, Linux?

Burst is the same as Max.

 

The Max speed is what will show to the OS.

 

So if you had not previously configured a Max speed (most customers haven't) and you upgraded to 4.01, every FlexNIC will then show 10Gb in the OS.
