VC Flex10/10D and 6 NIC for VMware


I am configuring C7000, that have two Virtual Connect Flex 10/10D module. only two ports are connected to Network switch so total for frour port as an uplink.  Also there are two modules as 8/24 Brocade SAN switch.

I am trying to achieve 6 ethernet adapters for each server profile (2 for VM Service console, 2 for VMotion, and 2 adapters for VM-Network).

However when i try to configure Shared Uplink Sets, I have maximum of 4 uplinks. 

My question is, can i have 6 or 8 Virtual Network Adapters for above requirements without making more uplinks physical connectivity.
