Usage Guidelines

When disabled, the switch does not send MAC address withdrawal messages. If a MAC address withdrawal message is received from another VPLS peer, the local VPLS peer processes the message and withdraws the specified MAC addresses from its FDB (forwarding database), regardless of the MAC address withdrawal configuration.


The following command disables MAC address withdrawal:

disable vpls fdb mac-withdrawal
