source (Multicast VLAN Registration)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

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


Configure a VLAN to be a multicast source VLAN (MVLAN).

To configure a data-forwarding VLAN as an MVLAN, you must also configure one or more multicast receiver VLANs (MVR receiver VLANs) with hosts that might be interested in receiving traffic on the MVLAN. A VLAN can be configured as either an MVLAN or MVR receiver VLAN, but not both at the same time.


On EX4300 switches, you can configure up to 10 MVLANs, and up to a total of 4K MVR receiver VLANs and MVLANs together. On EX2300 and EX3400, you can configure up to 5 MVLANs and the remaining configurable VLANs can be MVR receiver VLANs.

The remaining statement is explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
