How to dual-home single Nexus 2000 fex to Nexus 5000

I am trying to get a simple solution in place here, but not entirely sure how to go about it.

 

Two Nexus 5548UP and a single 2248TP.  I have it working on one of the Nexus switches as fex 100, but need to get it set up on the second Nexus.

 

Silly illustration of desired outcome:

Config on Nexus A:

 

feature fex

 

vpc domain 10
  peer-keepalive destination 10.10.100.2 source 10.10.100.1
  delay restore 150

 

fex 100
  pinning max-links 1
  description "FEX0100"
  serial SSI16440A4B

 

interface port-channel100
  switchport mode fex-fabric
  fex associate 100

interface Ethernet2/10
  switchport mode fex-fabric
  fex associate 100
  channel-group 100

interface port-channel10
  description po10_LINK_TO_PEER
  switchport mode trunk
  spanning-tree port type network
  speed 10000
  vpc peer-link

 

What should my config look like on Nexus B (any any necessary changes on A) assuming the same port (2/10)?
