I'm running UCS 4.04 and I am not seeing in the GUI where port channels connecting upstream to the LAN are associated with which VLANs.
If I SSH to UCS I can see that the new VLANs I added on the server NICs appear to be (automagically?) appearing on the port channel to
the network. But if I go into LAN Uplinks Manager/VLANs/VLAN Manager I expecting to see the port channels underneath the VLANs with
which they are associated. But that is not the case. From nxos CLI note the VLANs and their association with the uplinks.Perhaps it's the case that if you don't specifically assign a VLAN to an uplink that all VLANs automatially are permitted on those uplinks?

Partial config from connect nxos:

vlan configuration 1,9-11,20,30,32
vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32


interface port-channel2
  description U: Uplink
  switchport mode trunk
  pinning border
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32
  speed 10000
 
interface Ethernet1/1
  description U: Uplink
  pinning border
  switchport mode trunk
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32
  udld disable
  channel-group 2 mode active
  no shutdown

interface Ethernet1/2
  description U: Uplink
  pinning border
  switchport mode trunk
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32
  udld disable
  channel-group 2 mode active
  no shutdown

interface Ethernet1/3
  description U: Uplink
  pinning border
  switchport mode trunk
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32
  udld disable
  channel-group 2 mode active
  no shutdown

interface Ethernet1/4
  description U: Uplink
  pinning border
  switchport mode trunk
  switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,9-11,20,30,32
  udld disable
  channel-group 2 mode active
  no shutdown


GUI does not show port association for VLAN 9 for example
