Adding Flex I/O to Studio 5000 Project

I am adding some Flex I/O ethernet nodes to an existing project at a plant.

I've already set my IP addresses. And they show up with my IP scanner.

I have 2 16pt digital input modules and 2 16pt digital output modules installed on my 1794-AENT Ethernet Adapter.

I am unsure about what to select for Rack Connection and Chassis Size.

My options for Chassis size are from 4 to 8.

Is it as easy as selecting 4 for the number of modules that I have connected to my node? If so, can I use a higher number to reserve space to add modules later?

Also, any other insights are welcome.

It is as easy as stating how many you have connected....
If you put more in as an advance, will it give you a warning/error? not sure...

And you can add more afterwards if you require new modules, and the tags get added on automatically.
