vm-fex in ucs

Hi, i am doing vm-fex in ucs in my lab environment on esxi5.1. I had configured a dynamic vnic connection policy on the service template with 50 vnics.

When configuring the port-groups from ucsm, i noticed that it automatically creates an uplink-pg and deleted-pg. Questions:

- does the uplink-pg have any significance in vm-fex? I believe we are passing vlans to the port groups/port-profiles in the DVS that we create on the ucsm without using the uplink as any vtrunk interface.

- As i have created 50 dynamic vnics on the sp/blades, does this mean i can have a maximum of 50 port-groups on the DVS also? If yes, how can you find out the one-to-one association between the port-group and the dvnic?

uplink-pg

specific port config that will be pushed into vcenter as a dist port group that can be assigned to vms and vnics

deleted-pg

placeholder when switch is set up for control traffic, when a profile is deleted, all vnics are stored here, so do not use vnics from this port group
