How do I configure the blackhole MAC address of an AR

To configure a blackhole MAC address on an AR, use the following method.
Run the mac-address blackhole mac-address vlan vlan-id command in the system view.
For example:
# Add teh following blackhome MAC address entry in which the destination MAC address is 0004-0004-0004 and the VLAN ID is VLAN 5 to the MAC address table.
[Huawei] mac-address blackhole 0004-0004-0004 vlan 5

Note:
- The AR510 does not support blackhole MAC address entries.
-  For the AR161, AR161W, AR169, AR161G-L, AR169G-L, and AR169-P-M among AR169 series, when the source MAC address of packets is a blackhole MAC address, the AR does not discard the packets. Instead, the AR forwards them.
- On the 4GE-2S, 4ES2G-S, 4ES2GP-S, and 9ES2 cards, when the source MAC address of packets is a blackhole MAC address, the AR does not discard the packets. Instead, the AR forwards them.
