Specifying Mulitple Static Multicast Groups

A multicast group is usually learned when an MLDv1 report is received. You can manually configure one or more static groups without having to receive an MLDv1 report. To manually configure more than one static group there are two syntax options:

  • The count keyword followed by a number.
  • The to keyword in between two addresses

The following configuration examples demonstrate how to manually configure multiple static multicast groups.

Configure two static groups on physical interfaces, using the count option and starting from ff0d::1.

device# configure terminal
device(config) interface ethernet 1/1/5
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/5)# ipv6 mld static-group ff0d::1 count 2

Configure two static groups on physical interfaces, using the to option and starting from ff0d::1.


device# configure terminal
device(config) interface ethernet 1/1/5
device(config-if-e1000-1/1/5)# ipv6 mld static-group ff0d::1 to ff0d::2

Configure two static groups on virtual ports, using the count option and starting from ff0d::1. When using a virtual Ethernet interface (VE), you must specify the physical Ethernet port on which to add the group address.


device# configure terminal
device(config)# interface ve 10
device(config-vif-10)# ipv6 mld static-group ff0d::1 count 2 ethernet 1/1/5

Configure two static groups on virtual ports, using the to option and starting from ff0d::1. When using a virtual Ethernet interface (VE), you must specify the physical Ethernet port on which to add the group address.


device# configure terminal
device(config)# interface ve 10
device(config-vif-10)# ipv6 mld static-group ff0d::1 to ff0d::2 ethernet 1/1/5
