Everyone who owns an Unifi product is familiar with SDN controller, the UI and how to configure it. When you need Jumbo Frames or MTU sizes above the default of 1500 you need to adjust your configuration. On the Unifi Switches this can easily be done from the controller UI itself. As you can see in the screenshot below (from my own Unifi SDN Controller), you only have to do one-click in order to enable it on the switch. This can be done on all the switches.

My Synology is now connected to a LAG interface on my 16 Ports Layer 3 switch. Since I’m planning to move all of my hardware to my cabinet in the garage I also need to move the Synology, connect it to the UniFi switch and create a LAG again.

After powering up my systems again some Ubiquiti devices which were registered with my Unifi Controller had the disconnected status, even though I was able to ping them. After some reboots, and re-adoptions I didn’t get them online. (more…)
