HP Network config Utility limits jumbo frames to 4088

I am bringing up a new HP BL460c G6 server. I want to turn on Jumbo frames on the SAN network but when I go into the Maximum Frame Size settings in HP's Network Config Utility, the only Values I have are 1514 and 4088. I'm missing 9014 which was available before I updated the drivers.

I can't go back to an earlier driver version because I can't open NCU with the older driver version.


Versions:
nc532i = 5.0.13.0
NCU = 9.70.0.15

i think your server is under support/warranty, so you could open a HW/SW case directly in HP.

Hello Everyone,

Apparently the NC532i doesn't support Jumbo Packet larger than 4088 bytes. Even though you downgraded to a previous version of the NCU, setting the Jumbo Packets to 9014 has no effect. The newest versions of the NCU have been corrected to remove the 9014 byte option.
