I have determined that host profiles do not support configuring a vSS properly for jumbo frame support for iSCSI.
The way host profiles work when they are applied is that they blow away any existing switches and then re-set's them up, problem with the way it does it is that it does not support all functionality required. Namely Jumbo frames.
Can I get my understanding confirmed (Host profiles are not fully baked) and ask the following question.
Is it possible to tell a host profile to skip configuring certain items, like a vSS? From my review it appears that once the host profile has been created from a sample host you can't tell it NOT to implement certain parts of it.
Correct - at this time Host Profiles are not fully baked.
