Jumbo Frame support in the Procurve 5308XL?

Is there support for Jumbo Frames in the Procurve 5308XL switch?

I recall having heard one year ago from a HP representative that Jumbo Frames support would be added in a future firmware release.

Thanks.

Re: Jumbo Frame support in the Procurve 5308XL?

As of today, E.10.02 is the most current firmware update available for the 5300xl series ProCurve switches. The enhancements provided in E.10.02 (and in previous releases of the firmware) are documented in the Release Notes at ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/Release-Note-E-10-02-59912127-0605.pdf

A review of this file confirms support for Jumbo Frames has NOT yet been added to the 5300 series of switches.

Support for Jumbo Frames exists on the HP ProCurve 9300, 6400, 3400 and 2800 series switches on current firmware revisions.

Check the cabling. Next, check the cabling again.

So when will Jumb Frame support be implemented? Why has it not been done so already? (Don't say it's because customers haven't asked for it .. if that's the case, why does the 2800 series have it?)

Has Jumbo Frame support been added?
If a problem can be fixed, there's nothing to worry. If a problem can't be fixed, worrying ain't gonna help. Bottom line: don't worry.

If it was going to be added I'm guessing it would have been added now. So most likely there is a hardware limitation that prevents Jumbo frames on the 5300 series.
