Description (partial)

When using SR-IOV, VMQ shows as enabled on the interface used for SR-IOV/VM-FEX

Example: Here 'Ethernet 2' is using SR-IOV and is connected to the VM-FEX switch
PS C:\Program Files> Get-NetAdapterVmq

Name                           InterfaceDescription              Enabled BaseVmqProcessor MaxProcessors NumberOfReceive
----                           --------------------              ------- ---------------- ------------- ---------------
Ethernet 2                     Cisco VIC Ethernet Interface #2   True    0:0                            0

But the enictool shows that VMQ is not enabled

PS C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VIO Software\Utilities\Ethernet Utilities\Enictool> .\enictool.exe /y "Ethernet 2"
