install (Multicast VLAN Registration)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches.


Install forwarding entries on the multicast receiver VLAN when multicast VLAN registration (MVR) is enabled. By default, forwarding entries are only installed on the multicast source VLAN (MVLAN).

You cannot configure the install option for a data-forwarding receiver VLAN that is configured in proxy mode. When a VLAN is configured in MVR transparent mode, by default, the forwarding entries are installed only on the source MVLAN for a group address, so if the switch receives MVR receiver VLAN traffic for that group, the switch would not forward the traffic to receiver ports on the MVR receiver VLAN that sent the join message for that group. The traffic is only forwarded to MVR receiver interfaces on the MVLAN. To enable MVR receiver VLAN ports to receive traffic forwarded on the MVR receiver VLAN, configure this option.
