For Jumbo frame we have below setup

server 1 connected to switch SW1 (4500)  Jumbo fram eis configured on switch and server 9216
server 2 connected to switch SW2 (4500)  Jumbo fram eis configured on switch and server 9216
server 3 connected to switch SW2 (4500)  No jumbo frame is configured
Core switch 6500  (on all ports connected to 4500 junbo frame is configured )

Query is will server 3 recieve Jumbo frame or normal frame from Server 1 and server 2 ?

Also another query is which ever server is communicating with Server 1 and 2 will be recieving jumbo frames ?

Thanks for help

Firewalling forum is not the best place to put this question. LAN Switching and routing would be better.

In any case, jumbo frames require end-to-end setup (the end device and the intervening switch or switches) to all support jumbo frames for it to work. Otherwise the devices such as server 3 attached to a switch not supporting jumbo frames will not be able to communicate with server 1 and server 2 in your example.
