MTU on HP NC375T PCI Express Quad Port Gigabit Server Adapter

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am trying to set the MTU for Jumbo packets on Cent OS 6.  When ever I set it about 1500 I get "SIOCSIFMTU: Invalid argument" and "WARNING: NC375T supports only the default MTU of 1500 bytes" shows up in the messages log.  I updated the driver and firmware to the lastest and still get the messages.  Here is some ethtool output:
# ethtool -i eth0
driver: nx_nic
version: 4.0.556
firmware-version: 4.0.556
bus-info: 0000:01:00.0
I am getting ready to install Windows on it just to see if I can pass a jumbo packet with the card at all.  The docs say"

Default: 1500
Range : 0-8000
See the Examples section below on how to set the MTU
Any Ideas?  Thanks
