You can create a VMkernel network interface enabled with jumbo frames.

1

Log in to your ESX host’s console.

2

Use the esxcfg-vmknic -a -I <ip address> -n <netmask> -m <MTU> <port group name> command to create a VMkernel connection with jumbo frame support.

3

Use the esxcfg-vmknic -l command to display a list of VMkernel interfaces and check that the configuration of the jumbo frame-enabled interface is correct.

4

Check that the VMkernel interface is connected to a vSwitch with jumbo frames enabled.

5

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