SR-IOV testing hyper server 2012 R2

Last Modified: 2015-08-28

Just for testing purpose I have created a switch with SR-IOV enabled.
I have connected a VM to the switch but not sure if the SR-IOV is actually working.

In the VM device manager, I cannot see the adapter from the SR-IOV .
Under Networking, the status is OK.

My network adapter is a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit

Where / HOw can I check Network card compatibility with SR-IOV?
Do I require any special hardware , e.g:..10GB switch etc...

Thank you
