Nexus 7k number of supported VPC

Hello, can someone give me a reference on maximum number of VPC domains per VDC on the latest code for N7k?

We are building a new datacenter with 5k upstream to 7k with 2 VPC per 5k. How far we can scale?

Thanks

NX-OS 4.2 supports up to 256 VPCs per device but you can only have one VPC domain per VDC, see attached link for details -

Re: Nexus 7k number of supported VPC

I am little confused on this aspec:

If I can have only one vPC domain per VDC what does it mean by 256 vPCs per device. Does this mean 256 vPC peer links?

thanks

Re: Nexus 7k number of supported VPC

don't get confused with vpc peer link, vpc domain ID and vpc member.  one domain ID per vdc, and plenty of vpc member.
