In the Configuration tab, click Networking.
In the Networking window, select the vSwitch that you want to edit.
Click Properties for that vSwitch. The vSwitch Properties dialog appears.
Click the Ports tab.
Select the vSwitch in the Configuration list and click Edit. The vSwitch Properties dialog appears.
Click the General tab to set the number of ports.
Select or enter the number of ports you want to use.
Note: You may have to reboot the ESX host for the changes to take effect.
