I have a Hyper-V cluster with 3 nodes connected to a netapp fas3040 through qlogic qle4060c iSCSI cards.  Can someone tell me if jumbo frames are supported in this configuration and would it buy me anything?

Jumbo frames must be set in the Properties for the network interface(s) on the card in Device Manager of the hypervisor and the guest OS's Windows install.  If the setting isn't listed there, it's not supported.  Setting MTU only allows the IP stack to use it if made available by the hardware.

Perhaps this information will help:
