Description (partial)

The CLI allows configuration of UDP port 0 as destination port:
n7k-1# conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
n7k-1(config)# feature netflow 
n7k-1(config)# 2009 Nov 20 14:20:38.109 n7k-1 %NFM-5-FEATURE_ENABLED: NetFlow Enabled.

n7k-1(config)# flow exporter test
n7k-1(config-flow-exporter)# transport udp ?
  <0-65535>  Destination UDP Port

n7k-1(config-flow-exporter)# transport udp 0

UDP port 0 is an invalid port; when the flow exporter is configured with UDP port 0, no netflow record is sent to the collector.

Ideally, UDP port 1 - 1024 should be avoided as well, if possible.
