For Layer 2 networks, configure Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP) to dynamically share VLAN information and dynamically configure needed VLANs. Maintaining VLAN configurations based on active VLANs reduces the amount of traffic traveling in the network, saving network resources. MVRP is configured on trunk interfaces.

Configure Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP) on a trunk interface to ensure that the VLAN membership information on the trunk interface is updated as the switch’s access interfaces become active or inactive in the configured VLANs.


At Junos OS Release 11.3, MVRP was updated to conform to the IEEE standard 802.1ak. This update might result in compatibility issues in mixed release networks. For details, see Configuring Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP) on Switches .

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.


MVRP is disabled by default.
