Syntax Description

name Specifies a VLAN name.



Usage Guidelines

MLD is a protocol used by an IPv6 host to register its IPv6 multicast group membership with a router. Periodically, the router queries the multicast group to see if the group is still in use. If the group is still active, hosts respond to the query, and group registration is maintained.

MLD is disabled by default on the switch. However, the switch can be configured to enable the generation and processing of MLD packets. MLD should be enabled when the switch is configured to perform IPv6 unicast or IPv6 multicast routing.

This command disables all MLD versions. When MLD is disabled, the MLDv2 compatibility mode setting is lost. If compatibility mode is not specified in the command when MLD is enabled again, MLDv1 compatibility mode is set.


The following example disables MLD on VLAN accounting:

disable mld vlan accounting
