VC E/net module port failover

Setting up our c7000 right now trying to perform some testing on the failover process.
For simplicity sake, we have a VC enet module in both bay 1 and 2. Have a shared uplink set on bay 1 consisting of ports 1,2 (trunked at the switch level) and a secondary shared uplink set in bay 2 ports 1,2 (trunked at the switch level). So essentially trunked 2 gig uplink for prod and 2 gig uplink for failover.
Should i be able to pull (essentially to imitate a failure) ports 1,2 out and have the failover take place to the uplink defined on Bay 2? The thought right now is to define a shared uplink, and add the bandwidth (ports) as needed however retain the ports in bay 2 for redundancy sake. I would think mapping the servers to the shared uplink ports on bay 1 would work, then have bay 2 mirror bay 1 from a port standpoint back to the switch. or do I have to point pnet1 to bay 1 and pnet 2 to bay to in order to retain the failover capability?

thanks for the assistance
