Okay, here in my lab I have an MTU issue that I am facing.
I need to know if setting the "system mtu routing 9000" on my Cisco switch will allow jumbo frames in the network. Becuase currently it is working but not working everywhere. or to better put it they are not working when communicating with one VMware server. it is very intermittent. from one place in the network it will work and from the other, it won't.
so ping from the VMware switch to my storage device. I get the following.
""ping 10.100.0.200 size 1500
Pinging 10.100.0.200 with 1500 bytes of data:
----10.100.0.200 PING statistics----
4 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss
round-trip (msec) min/avg/max = <10/<10/<10""
But ping with 1400 will work just fine. Now if I go to the storage device and ping the same way it working fine, pinging the switch works with no problems.
Any thoughts on this.
