When using Broadcom chipsets VMware only officially supports the use of Jumbo Frames with chipsets that use the bnx2 driver such as 5708, 5706 and 5709.


Using Jumbo Frames with chipsets that use the tg3 driver is not supported by VMware. For more information on hardware compatibility, see the Search the Hardware Compatibility Guide page.
