(Optional) Configuring the Range of IPv6 Multicast Groups That an Interface Can Join

(Optional) Configuring the Range of IPv6 Multicast Groups That an Interface Can Join

Context

To limit the range of IPv6 multicast groups that an interface can join, configure ACL6 rules to filter received Multicast Listener Report messages so that the interface maintains multicast membership only in the allowed multicast groups.

Before specifying the range of multicast groups that an interface can join, configure an IPv6 access control list (ACL6) to define the range of multicast groups. For details about the ACL6 configuration, see "ACL Configuration" in the CloudEngine 8800, 7800, 6800, and 5800 Series Switches Configuration Guide - Security.

Procedure

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The interface view is displayed.

  3. On an Ethernet interface, run undo portswitch

    The interface is switched to Layer 3 mode.

    By default, an Ethernet interface works in Layer 2 mode.

    The mode switching function takes effect when the interface only has attribute configurations (for example, shutdown and description configurations). Alternatively, if configuration information supported by both Layer 2 and Layer 3 interfaces exists (for example, mode lacp and lacp system-id configurations), no configuration that is not supported after the working mode of the interface is switched can exist. If unsupported configurations exist on the interface, delete the configurations first and then run the undo portswitch command.

    NOTE:

    If many Ethernet interfaces need to be switched to Layer 3 mode, run the undo portswitch batch interface-type { interface-number1 [ to interface-number2 ] } &<1-10> command in the system view to switch these interfaces to Layer 3 mode in batches.

  4. Run mld group-policy { acl6-number | acl6-name acl6-name } [ 1 | 2 ]

    The range of multicast groups that the interface can join is configured.

    By default, an interface can join any multicast group.

    NOTE:

    When configuring an ACL6 rule for an interface, use the permit parameter in the rule command to allow hosts connected to the interface to join groups within the specified range. If no rule is configured in the ACL6, hosts connected to the interface cannot join any multicast groups.

  5. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
