HP support sucks :)
I hate when you call for support and they send a URL with a product manual! (like that hadn't been done already).

I want to enable Jumbo frames on my storage network. I have the details to enable on our SAN, and ESX hosts, just not the switch (HP Procurve 2824).
If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

    Syntax: vlan < vid > jumbo
    [ no ] vlan < vid > jumbo
    Configures the specified VLAN to allow jumbo packets on all
    ports on the switch that belong to that VLAN. If the VLAN is
    not already configured on the switch, vlan < vid > jumbo also
    creates the VLAN. Note that a port belonging to one jumbo
    VLAN can receive jumbo packets through any other VLAN
    statically configured on the switch, regardless of whether the
    other VLAN is enabled for jumbo packets. The [no] form of the
    command disables inbound jumbo traffic on all ports in the
    specified VLAN that do not also belong to another VLAN that
    is enabled for jumbo traffic. In a VLAN context, the command
    forms are jumbo and no jumbo. (Default: Jumbos disabled on
    the specified VLAN.)
