VM-FEX vNIC Manual Fabric Failover

Hello Cisco Experts,

Throughput is critical in the project that I'm working on now (Big Data).  I successfully deployed VM-FEX's High-Performance mode.  However, I would like to run the management and data traffic through separate FI's.

Only 1 Dynamic vNIC Connection Policy is allowed per Service Profile Template.  So, I have to choose either for FI-A to be preferred, FI-B to be preferred, or for UCS to randomly assign active paths from either FI.

Is there a way that I can failover a Dynamic vNIC Manually so that I can confirm that my VMs' data traffic and management traffic flow on separate FIs?

Thank you,
