nic teaming on a server, two FEXs (2248s) with uplinks to a single N7K?

So I have a setup like the one in the image... But I want to make these connections to each FEX bonded from the server side so that their active/active... I see the obvious message in my N7K:

command failed: port not compatible [Members in multiple FEX]

** You can use force option to override the port's parameters

** (e.g. "channel-group X force")

** Use "show port-channel compatibility-parameters" to get more information on failure

So probably a stupid question, but wondering if there's any workaround out there? Can/Should I use the force option (I'm guessing not)?... Thanks

You can try the force command.  This is an optional command:

force (Optional) Forces the interface to join the channel group, although some

parameters are not compatible. For information on the compatibility

parameters and which ones can be forced, see the Usage Guidelines section.

Here is the config gude:
