Configuring Multicast VLAN Registration (CLI Procedure)
Multicast VLAN registration (MVR) allows hosts that are not part of a multicast source VLAN (MVLAN) to still receive multicast streams from the MVLAN, allowing an MVLAN to be shared across a Layer 2 network. Hosts remain in their own VLANs for bandwidth and security reasons but are able to receive multicast streams from the MVLAN.
You can configure one or more VLANs on a switch to be MVLANs or MVR receiver VLANs. By default, MVR is not configured on EX Series switches.
Note: MVR is supported on VLANs running IGMP version 2 (IGMPv2) only.
Note: When configuring MVR, the following restrictions apply:
To configure MVR:
- Configure the VLAN named mv0 to be
user@switch# set igmp-snooping vlan mv0 data-forwarding source groups 188.8.131.52/16
- Configure the MVLAN mv0 to be a proxy
user@switch# set igmp-snooping vlan mv0 proxy source–address 10.0.0.1
- Configure the VLAN named v2 to be an MVR
user@switch# set igmp-snooping vlan v2 data-forwarding receiver source-vlans mv0
- Install forwarding entries in the MVR receiver
user@switch# set igmp-snooping vlan mv0 data-forwarding receiver install
