configure mvr static group

configure mvr vlan vlan-name static group {policy-name | none}


Configures the MVR static group address range on a VLAN.

Syntax Description

vlan-name Specifies a VLAN name.
policy-name Specifies a policy file.


By default, all the MVR group addresses work in static mode.

Usage Guidelines

If no policy file is specified (the none option), the entire multicast address range, except for the multicast control range, is used for static groups in MVR.

MVR must first be configured on the VLAN before using this command.

The following is a sample policy file mvrpol.pol. This policy configures as the MVR static group address range. Any MVR addresses outside this range are dynamically registered through IGMP. An MVR VLAN will proxy join only for addresses that are not in the static group. If you want all the multicast groups to by dynamic, use a policy file with this command that denies all multicast addresses.

Entry extreme1 {
	if match any {
		nlri ;
	then {
		permit ;


The following example configures the MVR static group address range specified in the policy file mvrpol.pol for the VLAN v1:

configure mvr vlan v1 static group mvrpol


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.
