Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches that do not support the Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS) configuration style (non-ELS switches).

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3 for the QFX Series.

Statement and mode, source-list, and translate options introduced in Junos OS Release 18.3R1 for EX4300 switches (ELS switches).

Statement and mode, source-list, and translate options added in Junos OS Release 18.4R1 for EX2300 and EX3400 switches (ELS switches).

Description

Configure a VLAN as a multicast receiver VLAN of a multicast source VLAN (MVLAN) using the multicast VLAN registration (MVR) feature.

You must associate an MVR receiver VLAN with at least one data-forwarding source MVLAN. You can configure an MVR receiver VLAN with multiple source MVLANs using the source-list or source-vlans statement.

The remaining statements are explained separately.

Note

The mode, source-list, and translate statements are only applicable to MVR configuration on EX Series switches that support the Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS) configuration style.

The source-vlans statement is applicable only to EX Series switches that do not support ELS, and is equivalent to the ELS source-list statement.

See CLI Explorer.

Default

MVR not enabled

Options

installInstall forwarding table entries (also called bridging entries) on the MVR receiver VLAN when MVR is enabled. By default, MVR only installs bridging entries on the source MVLAN for a group address.

You cannot configure the install option for a data-forwarding receiver VLAN that is configured in proxy mode (see the MVR mode option). In MVR transparent mode, by default, the device installs bridging entries only on the MVLAN for a multicast group, so upon receiving MVR receiver VLAN traffic for that group, the switch doesn’t forward the traffic to receiver ports on the MVR receiver VLAN that sent the join message for that group. The traffic is only forwarded on the MVLAN to MVR receiver interfaces. Configure this option when in transparent mode to enable MVR receiver VLAN ports to receive traffic forwarded on the MVR receiver VLAN.

mode (proxy | transparent)(ELS devices only) Set proxy or transparent mode for an MVR receiver VLAN. This statement is explained separately. The mode is transparent by default.
source-list vlan-list(ELS devices only) Specify a list of multicast source VLANs (MVLANs) from which a multicast receiver VLAN receives multicast traffic when multicast VLAN registration (MVR) is configured. This option is available only on on-ELS devices. (Use the source-vlans option for the same function on non-ELS switches.)
source-vlans vlan-list(Non-ELS switches only) Specify a list of MVLANs for MVR operation from which the MVR receiver VLAN receives multicast traffic when multicast VLAN registration (MVR) is configured. Either all of these MVLANs must be in proxy mode or none of them can be in proxy mode (see proxy). This option is available only on non-ELS switches. (Use the source-list option for the same function on ELS devices.)
translate(ELS devices only) Translate VLAN tags in multicast VLAN (MVLAN) packets from the MVLAN tag to the multicast receiver VLAN tag on an MVR receiver VLAN. Without this option, tagged traffic has the MVLAN ID by default.

We recommend you set this option for MVR receiver VLANs with trunk ports, so hosts on the trunk interfaces receive multicast traffic tagged with the expected VLAN ID (the MVR receiver VLAN ID).
