XS712T Jumbo Frames

Hi all,

It appears that Im having some issues with enabling jumbo frames on my XS712T. I have set the max frame size to 9216, and yet if I try to ping a device connected to the switch with anything over 1500bytes it times out. I have directly connected both devices and have no issue pinging with larger packets which makes me think its the switch blocking the packets.

Is there anywhere else I need to enable jumbo frames on the switch other than "maximum frame size"?

Thanks all

Hi,

Did you ever get to the bottom of the issue with jumbo frames on the XS712T? I have exactly the same issue. If I set the MTU > 1500 in VMware the connection is blocked by the XS712T.

If I plug the cables into a standard HP Procurve the connection works for an MTU of 9000... Its just odd.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: XS712T Jumbo Frames

I did not, I simply set my jumbo frames at 8000 on my workstations and servers and it seems to be working though not sure why I had to set them that low...


I would give that a try and report back, when Im at the office tomorrow I can look in to further settings if your still having issues.

Thanks,
Rudy
