Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.2 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kerne [3.8.13] to Oracle Linux 7.2 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kerne [3.8.13] [Release OL7U2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Setting MTU to 9000 on team interface is not persisting after a reboot . The network configuration includes VLAN interfaces over teaming.

Each time the MTU still shows at 1500 with command "ip addr" after a reboot.

The only way to set the MTU to 9000 is using "ip link set <dev> mtu 9000".



Below changes are done to network configuration files
