Configuring the IGMP Snooping Version

Configuring the IGMP Snooping Version


Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) manages multicast group members and runs on the network segments where Layer 3 multicast devices connect to user hosts. IGMP has three protocol versions V1, V2, and V3. You can specify the IGMP snooping version on a Layer 2 device to enable the device to process IGMP messages of the specified version. Generally, the version on the Layer 2 device should be the same as that on the Layer 3 multicast device. If IGMP is disabled on the Layer 3 multicast device, configure the same IGMP version as member hosts or a higher IGMP version.

Devices in the same VLAN must run the same IGMP version. When hosts that run different IGMP versions exist in a VLAN, set an appropriate IGMP snooping version to enable the switch to process IGMP messages of different versions.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run vlan vlan-id

    The VLAN view is displayed.

  3. Run igmp snooping version version

    The version of IGMP messages that the switch can process is set.

    By default, the switch can process IGMPv1 and IGMPv2 messages but cannot process IGMPv3 messages.


    When MAC address-based forwarding is enabled in the VLAN, IGMPv3 cannot be configured.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
