I am running docker for Mac as described here https://docs.solace.com/Solace-SW-Broker-Set-Up/Docker-Containers/Set-Up-Docker-Container-macOS.htm

Container starts OK. But will not allow me to create more than 3 VPN - it responds "Message VPN limit reached". I cannot find any relevant documentation covering this configuration option. How do I increase the maximum number of VPN? My use case requires 4 VPN.

My docker-compose.yml:

solace:
  image: solace/solace-pubsub-standard:9.4.0.85
  shm_size: 4g
  ulimits:
    core: 1
    nofile:
      soft: 418332
      hard: 418332
  environment:
    - username_admin_globalaccesslevel=admin
    - username_admin_password=admin
    - system_scaling_maxconnectioncount=1000
  ports:
    - "8080:8080"
    - "55551:55555"

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    Just to be very clear here: You use Enterprise Version 9.12.1.17 and you can only create 3 message-vpns ?


    Please do in cli:

    show version
    show message-vpn *
    


    and copy the output here.

    Hi @jahwag,

    you're using the standard edition, and the standard edition has a low message vpn limit - as documented here:


    If you need 4 message vpns you can either use multiple standard editions or use the enterprise edition (where a license is required).

    BTW: In your docker compose file, version 9.4 is used.... You should change this to 9.13. (but this wont change anything on the number of message vpns you can use).

    Thank you for clearing that up!

    Mixed up editions. Earlier we used Enterprise 8.5.0.1008. I have located a more recent version, Solace PubSub+ Enterprise Version 9.12.1.17. However with it I am still receiving the error message "Message VPN limit reached.".

    I think it was cached layers causing some issue. It cleared up now. Thanks!
