Use the vSphere CLI to create a VMkernel network interface that is enabled with Jumbo Frames.


On the vSphere CLI, run the vicfg-vmknic command to create a VMkernel connection with Jumbo Frame support.

vicfg-vmknic -a -I ip address -n netmask -m MTU port group name


Run the vicfg-vmknic -l command to display a list of VMkernel interfaces and check that the configuration of the Jumbo Frame-enabled interface is correct.


Check that the VMkernel interface is connected to a vSwitch with Jumbo Frames enabled.


Configure all physical switches and any physical or virtual machines to which this VMkernel interface connects to support Jumbo Frames.
