Greetings Everyone, I need your input on how to appropriately introduce an N5K with Jumbo enanbled to a prexisting Core Network (Stack of Cisco 3750G Switches) without making any major alteration on the Core configs (everything is happy). The idea is to move two High I/O servers to the N5K during a transitional phase. I already have a fair understanding of what Jumbo-Frames are and what it does. I welcome any realistic answer from anyone who has tried this and has it working in a production environment. Here's why I wanted to do this: - Boost bandwidth between two High I/O Linux servers What I don't want to do: - Enable Jumbo-Frames on the Core Network - keep @ a default of 1500 mtu - Renumber the servers What I wish to accomplish: - Keep Jumbo-Frames within the N5K ONLY Conditions: - Traffic is Data traffic, not storage/iSCSI - The servers host our ERP applications and MySQL that is accessed heavily by users - N5K to C3750G connectivity is a Port-Channel consisting of 4x1GB ports - The servers are to remain on VLAN 2 (Data VLAN) - The Core Switch is L3 and the boundaries reside here I look forward to your suggestions. Thank you Everyone! Elmer

It is supported as of 6.1(1) as Justin stated so don't be dismayed. I bumped into this issue last week with my initial build.Not so much of a hassle for me but if your N7K is in production you may need to schedule a maintenance outage for it since you may also need to conduct other firmware upgrades. The process is pretty straightfoward. Just lengthy. Good Luck!
