Changing MTU setting in GUI stops IP address being set.
I did discuss this with raulfg3 on another post here, but under a different thread topic. Just thought I'd give it its own thread. Not for my need but merely for interest, if anyone else had this or it fixed a bug.
I have not changed any hardware.I just pulled the boot HDD, and put in another identical IDE 40gb WD drive and installed the latest XigmaNAS 184.108.40.206 - Omnius (revision 6536)
exact same hardware, as Shigwire and this problem did not occur. Upgrade to XigmasNAS and MTU 9000 stops network access.
If I boot in Shigwire and WebGUI and check Network/LAN Management I can set MTU 9000
Ip address is set static 192.168.2.2
All is good
if I check
Network/LAN management when booted to XigmaNAS
I see the MTU box is blank
if I set 9000, on reboot...although IP address is set as static, I get no IP address.
See photo below.
If I set 1500, all is good.
With Shigwire the system accepted and worked with MTU 9000 jumbo packets with XigmasNAS it does not.
Just intrigued to know why with same hardware it fails with XigmasNAS
