I am not sure why, but I cannot get Jumbo Frames to work properly:


root at virt2:~# ping -M do -s 8972 -c 4 10.10.10.83
PING 10.10.10.83 (10.10.10.83) 8972(9000) bytes of data.
ping: local error: Message too long, mtu=1500
ping: local error: Message too long, mtu=1500
ping: local error: Message too long, mtu=1500


Jumbo Frames is on, on the switch and on the NIC's:

ens2f0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 9000
        inet 10.10.10.83  netmask 255.255.255.0  broadcast 10.10.10.255
