Uplinks and Tunnel Mode


After some advice please.

Currently have an environment of virtual connect domain with two C7000 chassis with 2 x HP Virtual Connect FlexFabric 10Gb/24-port interconnects in each chassis (4 in total) all within the same VC domain.

Shared Uplink Sets have been configured using 3 ports from each interconnect module.

I need to free up one of these ports on each interconnect for a different use. Can I remove a port from the active shared uplink set without impacting services which are using it?

Second question, I want to create a Ethernet network in tunnel mode using the reclaimed uplink port on each interconnect - Am I able to assign this same Ethernet network to more than one flex nic within the same Server profile? 

Thanks in advance!
