Description (partial)

In MP8.5/8.6 documentation (, we state the following: 
1. "Continuous meetings cannot expand port reservations as users join. If all the reserved ports for a continuous meeting are in use, additional users can join the meeting only if floater ports are available. This restriction applies to audio and video ports."
2. "You cannot choose the number of ports so all continuous meetings have zero ports. This ensures that no resources are held when the meeting is not active."

This second statement is true, as you cannot set the number of ports when scheduling any meetings in MP8.5/8.6, and not just for continuous ones. However, in the first  statement, we talk about expanding port reservation and use of floater ports. In MP8.5./8.6 we can't configure any type of ports including floater ports. All available ports on the system are considered Floater ports and are used on first come first serve basis in Audio only deployments. 

In a nutshell, the only limitation for number of participants that can join Continuous meeting on MP8.5 / 8.6 is the value specified under "Maximum ports per scheduled meeting". For any participant trying to join continuous meeting after this limit is reached, the following prompt will be played: "prompt ID:  519 Meeting access is not possible.  All the scheduled phone lines are in use."
