Configuring Dynamic Learning of ARP Entries with Multicast MAC Addresses

Configuring Dynamic Learning of ARP Entries with Multicast MAC Addresses

Context

An IP address maps to a multicast MAC address in some service scenarios. For example, in Figure 2-18, the Switch connects to an NLB cluster through the Layer 2 switch LSW. The NLB cluster works in multicast mode and has a multicast MAC address as the cluster MAC address. After the Switch is enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, it generates dynamic ARP entries based on ARP reply packets from LSW. This reduces a network administrator's workload and decreases network operation and maintenance costs.

Procedure

  • Globally enable a device to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses
    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run arp learning multicast enable

      The device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.

      By default, a device is globally disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.

      If a device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is enabled on all the interfaces.

  • Enable an interface to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.
    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

      The interface view is displayed.

    3. Run arp learning multicast enable

      The interface is enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.

      By default, if a device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is enabled on all the interfaces. If a device is globally disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is disabled on all the interfaces.

      NOTE:

      If the undo arp learning multicast enable command is run on an interface, the interface is disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses. Instead, the interface uses the global configuration in the configuration file. If a device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is enabled on all the interfaces. If a device is globally disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is disabled on all the interfaces.

  • Disable an interface from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses after a device has been globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.
    1. Run system-view

      The system view is displayed.

    2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

      The interface view is displayed.

    3. Run arp learning multicast disable

      The interface is disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.

      By default, if a device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is enabled on all the interfaces. If a device is globally disabled from learning ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses, this function is disabled on all the interfaces.

Verifying the Configuration

  • Run the display current-configuration | include arp learning multicast command in the system view to check whether the device is globally enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.

  • Run the display this include-default | include arp learning multicast command in the interface view to check whether the interface is enabled to learn ARP entries with multicast MAC addresses.
