Jacob,

If you have 8100 enabled, you can pass up to 8100 in size. If you've got 9000 enabled, you can pass 9000.

Keep in mind the motherboard is likely the same (or very similar..) - There's also a reason your Edge-corE switch is only set to 8100 as opposed to 9000 byte frames.


Secondly, you'll only pass a Jumbo Frame packet in the case of a Jumbo Frame. If you pass a Standard Frame packet on a Jumbo Frame network it flows okay...because it's less then your jumbo frame setting....

Just because you've got Jumbo Frames enabled, doesn't mean it's passing jumbo packets...just that it can which will be very integral in your video environment.
