By the way, I meant to put the driver versions in that I'm using now but I'm not sure how much it matters.
(dock)root@localhost:~# ethtool -i net0
(dock)root@localhost:~# uname -a
Linux localhost 3.14.51-grsec-dock #1 SMP Tue Feb 23 03:12:31 PST 2016 x86_64 GNU/Linux
And in the VF:
root@sp-ub1404-s:~# ethtool -i eth0

VF promiscuous mode is not supported in Intel 82599. This is a hardware limitation.
Similar mail thread is there in the link [dpdk-dev] Reg: promiscuous mode on VF
You can get more idea on visiting the link.
Thanks for the info - never heard back from the link didn't work directly but was able to search and find it. I looks like the thread ended with Greg suggesting a somewhat complicated workaround - did you ever get that to work or give up and move on?
Also, did you ever try out the X710 or XL710 to verify that the functionality you were asking for is really there? It wasn't clear that desire to have it in promiscuous mode for only a single VLAN would be there or it would be for all VLANs?
