Release Information

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

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


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

An MVR receiver VLAN must be associated with at least one MVLAN, and can be associated with multiple MVLANs.

The remaining statements are explained separately.


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.
