Before configuring IPv6 multicast load splitting, complete the following tasks:
To restrict forwarding of multicast packets sent to a multicast group within a range on an IPv6 multicast network, configure the IPv6 multicast boundary on interfaces. Then multicast packets sent to the group cannot be forwarded through the boundary interfaces.
The system view is displayed.
The interface view is displayed.
The interface is switched to Layer 3 mode.
By default, an Ethernet interface works in Layer 2 mode.
Only the S5720-EI, S5720-HI, S5730-HI, S5731-H, S5731-S, S5731S-H, S5731S-S, S5732-H, S6720-EI, S6720-HI, S6720S-EI, S6730-H, S6730S-H, S6730-S, and S6730S-S support switching between Layer 2 and Layer 3 modes.
An IPv6 multicast boundary is configured on the interface.
After configuring an IPv6 multicast boundary on interfaces, check the IPv6 multicast routing table and information about the multicast boundary on the interfaces to verify that the IPv6 multicast network can operate normally.
