    enabling jumbo frames fails in 11.2


      This document Setting Datalink Properties - Oracle Solaris Administration: Network Interfaces and Network Virtualization states that to enable jumbo frames the following commands have to be used:


      # ipadm delete-if net0

      # dladm set-linkprop -p mtu=9000 net0

      This command fails in 11.2 with the error message:

      dladm: warning: cannot set link property 'mtu' on net0: link busy

      After that I cannot even go back to the old DHCP address as every IP address creation command reports 'operation failed'

      What is the correct method to enable jumbo frames?
