Unable to forward ve interfaces to new VRF

Hello,
We just created a new vrf on a brocade ICX 7750 it looks like this: 

[email protected]#show vrf detail
Total number of VRFs configured: 1
VRF TELIP-SF, default RD 10:10, Table ID 1
IP Router-Id: 1.1.1.1
  No interfaces
  Address Family IPv4
    Max Routes: 4096
    Number of Unicast Routes: 0
Total number of IPv4 unicast route for all non-default VRF is 0
Total number of IPv6 unicast route for all non-default VRF is 0

The 7750 runs L3 code and has  many running ve interfaces assigned to vlans 

When creating a new ve (router interface) for a new vlan, we cannot forward the ve to the new VRF:

[email protected](config)#vlan 445 name telip by port
[email protected](config-vlan-445)#tag ethernet 1/1/1
Added tagged port(s) ethe 1/1/1 to 1/1/2 to port-vlan 445.
[email protected](config-vlan-445)#router-interface ve 445
[email protected](config-vlan-445)#exit
[email protected](config)#interface ve 445
[email protected](config-vif-445)#ip address 10.89.95.66/28
[email protected](config-vif-445)#vrf forwarding TELIP-SF
Invalid input -> TELIP-SF
[email protected](config-vif-445)#

It does work when assigning a physical interface to the new VRF...

What are we missing?

Thanks in advance

Hello,
It turns out that when you create the vlan you have to assign it to physical interface that has no other vlans assigned to it, then it lets you forward this vlan's ve interface to the VRF.
After that you can assign this vlan to other physical interfaces.

Result for vlan 445 and 446:

[email protected]#show vrf
Total number of VRFs configured: 1
Status Codes - A:active, D:pending deletion, I:inactive
Name                 Default RD          vrf|v4|v6 V4Routes V6Routes Interfaces
TELIP-SF             10:10               A  | A| I        3        0 ve445 ve446

Total number of IPv4 unicast route for all non-default VRF is 3
Total number of IPv6 unicast route for all non-default VRF is 0

Best regards.
