Need to have an option to check SRIOV physical port MAC address when it is used in shared mode

There should be an option to check SRIOV physical port MAC address when the adapter is used in shared mode. For now, HMC GUI list the physical port MAC address only if the frame is powered on with hardware discovery otherwise there is no way to find out the underlying SRIOV physical port MAC address.
