FastIron SX800 Increased VE number range?

My SX800 is running router code. I realize you can only use 255 VE interfaces. However, is there a way to increase the range of usable numbers? IE: We'd like to correlate our building numbers to VE. So BLDG 988 would use VE 988. Thanks

yes, there is a way.
But SX supports maximum 512 Virtual interfaces.

You can use below command.(it requires a reload)

system-max  virtual-interface 512

hope this helps,
