Can a Virtual Switch be associated with the same VLAN and different ports?

We have a provider who uses Q-n-Q, thus we do virtual circuits and switches for them. Well, typically that means one service per switch. Now I'm trying to figure out how I can turn up a second port on a switch that already has the VC and VS set up and associated with their one vlan.

Here is the current config and I need to add port 4 to this just like port 3.


! VIRTUAL-CIRCUIT CONFIG: virtual circuits
virtual-circuit ethernet create vc Provider_1234 vlan 1234
virtual-switch add reserved-vlan 4001
virtual-switch ethernet create vs Provider vc Provider_1234
virtual-switch ethernet add vs Provider port 3
port set port 3 untagged-data-vs Provider untagged-ctrl-vs Provider



1. I would assume since I am still using vlan 1234 with port 4 I can reuse the VC, is this safe to assume? 

2. Do I need to create a new VS, like Provider_2 that I then associate with the existing VC and apply to port 4?


Anyone see any red flags with this that I'm not seeing? I checked through some of the SAOS documentation, but I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for to get these answers.
