How to enable jumbo frames on all the computers without going to each location & manually enabling them.

How to enable jumbo frames on all the windows based computers using GPO?
I have many windows 7/8/10 machines joined with the domain.
I want to enable jumbo frames on all the computers without going to each location & manually enabling them.
I have windows 2012 R2 domain controller, MS exchange 2013, SQL in virtual environment & iSCSI enabled NAS. Have enabled jumbo frame at CISCO SG300 switch running at L2. No VLAN is configured.
CISCO RV042 doesn't have jumbo settings.
ALL the NIC are gigabit & I assume all support jumbo frames.  One 8 port switch is 100 Mbps & unmanaged.


Please guide.

Jumbo frames are a NIC setting and it seems that each vendor follows its own process. For Intel, for example, you can do setting via a GPO registry preference and filter with a WMI filter

Thanks for the link.
But every host may have a different NIC.
to find GUID for every NIC in the network & writing code or the filter is still cumbersome.
Do we have any other tool for a procedure for the same?

Then run it as a PowerShell startup script. This script does the NIC enumeration

Be very sure that all intermediate equipment can handle JUMBO frames as well, an possibly enable PMTU before.
Otherwise things will come to a screeching halt....

As there is no provision of pushing the settings through GPO. I took it as "My query is resolved".
Thanks for giving the alternate solutions that I would test some time latter.
