It might be helpful if you could post some drawing of how you have the boxes designed, as well as what results you wish to get ...

So go to this link:


This is the vpc best practices guide and it shows examples of how to do 7ks with 5ks.  If you are going to set this up I highly recommend reading through this guide.

This should answer all your questions.
