Whether S series switch can generate a multicast table item by IGMPv2 message when it specifies the source address of the programme group

For S series switches, BTV has a similar configuration as follows:

multicast-group tv1 ip-address 232.0.0.1 source 10.1.1.1

After receiving the IGMP Report message, it is necessary to check the internal address and the source address of the packet. While the IGMPv2 message does not specify the source address, it will fail to generate a forwarding table entry when the check is performed.
