The maximum transmission unit (MTU) of the virtual switch in bytes.

Since VI API 2.5

The number of ports that this virtual switch is configured to use. Changing this setting does not take effect until the next reboot. The maximum value is 1024, although other constraints, such as memory limits, may establish a lower effective limit.

The virtual switch policy specification. This has a lower precedence than PortGroup. If the policy property is not set and you are creating a virtual switch, then a default policy property setting is used. If the policy property is not set and you are updating a virtual switch, then the policy will be unchanged.
