Do S series switches support broadcasting of mirrored packets in a VLAN

Whether mirrored packets are broadcast in a VLAN depends on whether the MAC address table of this VLAN contains entries matching the MAC addresses of the mirrored packets. If the MAC address table of a VLAN contains entries matching the MAC addresses of the mirrored packets, the mirrored packets are forwarded based on the MAC address table at Layer 2. Otherwise, the mirrored packets are processed in the same manner as Layer 2 unknown traffic, that is, they are broadcast in the VLAN. If the MAC address table of a VLAN contains entries matching the MAC addresses of the mirrored packets, and the mirrored packets need to be broadcast in the VLAN, run the mac-address learning disable command in the view of this VLAN to disable MAC address learning (This function applies to all S series switches except S1700 switches.)
