BL460c and Hyper-V

I have a BL460c associated with a PCI expansion blade housing a fibre channel HBA. This is connected to a Storageworks Tape loader.

I would like to install Hyper-V server but don't know whether the fibre HBA can be passed through to a virtual server so I can have a tape backup virtual machine.

Presumably, an alternative would be to have a full install of W2K8 backing up to the tape and Hyper-V role doing VMs but I would prefer it if I could use Hyper-V.

Will the BL460c setup I have work this way or should it be done another way?

many thanks,
Tim.
