Solaris e1000g mtu 9000
Posted on 2014-12-12
Hi, I have four solaris servers and I want to connect them with a NetApp NAS
The solaris version is:
5.10 Generic_127127-11 sun4v sparc SUNW,SPARC-Enterprise–T2000
I use the e1000g driver on Solaris
I cant find out how to set mtu to 9000
after searching on the internet i see there are only 3 options for mtu:
# 0 is for normal ethernet frames.
# 1 is for upto 4k size frames.
# 2 is for upto 8k size frames.
# 3 is for upto 16k size frames.
However I do not want to set it to 16k size frames, because if the solaris is trying to write 16k packets on the netapp, and the netapp has 9000 mtu configured, I assume this is not going to work?
Any ideas how to set specifically 9000 mtu on my Solaris interfaces?
