Link two VC FC 8Gb

Hi,
I have one HP Virtual Connect FC 8Gb connected to my main, backbone SAN switch (Brocade).
The uplinks looks okay (green light, no errors during creation).
Now, I would like to have a 2nd VC FC 8Gb connected to the same SAN, but via the first VC FC (I don't have available ports on my Brocade backbone).
I've tried link the 2nd VC FC to the first one, but it doesn't look good. The port is amber and shows as 'Unavaialble' via the VC Manager.

Anyone tried that before? Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Yaniv

VC-SAN's connect to switches, not to each other in anyway.
