Possibility of using VC Flex-10 uplink ports connect to rack server!!!

Hi All,

 

My previous understanding about purpose of VC Flex-10 uplink ports

is to carry traffic from blade to data center core switch.

My problem is now, if I want to connect two of rack servers (which already have 10gig NIC)

to servers in blade enclosure via VC Flec-10  (I have no external 10GE Switch).

 

Can I connect 10gig ports (10GBASE-SR) from server directly

to the empty Flex-10 uplink ports  for that purpose?

 

Can VC Flex-10 perform 10Gig switching function like an External 10GE switch?

 

Thank you very much for any answer or comment.
