Networking Modules question.....

I have a c7000 with 2 GBE2c modules in BAY 1&2, 2 4GB fiber modules in BAY 3&4 and 2 GBE2c modules in BAY 5&6.

 

I have a trunk to each module in bay 1&2 to my core switch and the X17 and x18 interconnect links are trunked as well. Spanning tree is turned on all switches.

 

I want to now add a trunk to BAY 5&6 the same way. 

 

What I'm noticing is even though I have nothing connected to BAY 5&6 yet I can still get to the management IP of each switch. Is there something I should be concerned about when configuring this like other interconnects between the modules to BAY 1&2? Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

 

Also I've read that GBE2C doesn't support LACP but in the management interface I see LACP.
