How to configure the limit on the number of entries in the forwarding table on an S series switch

1

For S series switches, you can run the multicast forwarding-table route-limit limit command in the system view to set the maximum number of entries in the multicast forwarding table.

What should I do if the number of entries in the multicast routing table reaches the upper limit on an S series switch
If the number of multicast entries generated on an S series switch reaches the upper limit, new multicast routing entries cannot be generated. In this case, run the reset multicast routing-table all command to clear multicast routing entries. Multicast data may be temporarily interrupted before multicast routing entries are re-generated.

Delete entries in binding tables for IPSG (user-bind binding tables) on S series switches
Delete entries in a binding table for IPSG (user-bind binding table) on an S series switch (except the S1700) as follows: Binding entries include static entries and dynamic entries. Dynamic entries are automatically generated when DHCP snooping is enabled. To delete dynamic entries, disable DHCP snooping. Static entries are configured manually. To delete static entries, perform the following operations: 1. Run the display dhcp static user-bind all command to view all static binding entries on the switch. [HUAWEI] display dhcp static user-bind all 2. Delete binding entries as required. a. Delete the static binding entry of IP address 192.168.1.1. [HUAWEI] undo user-bind static ip-address 192.168.1.1 mac-address 0001-0001-0001 b. Delete the static binding entry of MAC address 0002-0002-0002. [HUAWEI]undo user-bind static mac-address 0002-0002-0002 c. Delete all static binding entries of GE0/0/1. [HUAWEI] undo user-bind static interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 d. Delete all static binding entries in VLAN 10. [HUAWEI] undo user-bind static vlan 10 e. Delete all entries in the static binding table. [HUAWEI]undo user-bind static

Why does an S series switch have a (*,G) entry and an (S,G) entry in the multicast routing table
It is normal that each multicast group has two entries on an S series switch. For ASM multicast services, the (*,G) entry is generated when a switch receives a user request to join the multicast group, and the (S,G) entry is generated when the switch receives multicast data packets for the multicast group. The outbound interface in the (S,G) entry is obtained from the (*,G) entry.

Configure binding tables for IPSG (user-bind binding tables) on S series switches
Configure a binding table for IPSG (user-bind binding table) on an S series switch (except the S1700) as follows: �?Static binding table A static binding entry contains at least one of the following: IP address, MAC address, interface, VLAN, and IP address and MAC address. An interface cannot be bound to a VLAN to form a binding entry. For example, configure a static binding entry of VLAN 2 and IP address 1.1.1.1. [HUAWEI] user-bind static ip-address 1.1.1.1 vlan 2 Note: Static binding entries can be configured only in the system view. �?Dynamic binding table Enable DHCP snooping globally and on an interface. Generally, the interface directly or indirectly connected to the DHCP server or gateway is configured as a trusted interface. After DHCP snooping is enabled and the trusted interface is configured, user-side interfaces automatically generate dynamic binding entries based on received DHCP ACK packets. For example, enable DHCP snooping globally and on GE0/0/1, and configure G0/0/1 as a trusted interface. [HUAWEI] dhcp enable [HUAWEI] dhcp snooping enable [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dhcp snooping enable [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dhcp snooping trusted Note: If both DHCP relay and VRRP are configured on a switch, DHCP snooping cannot be enabled. DHCP snooping cannot be enabled if the DHCP server is at the subordinate VLAN side and the DHCP client is at the principle VLAN side. After DHCP snooping is configured, the switch generates DHCP snooping entries for the hosts when the hosts go online again. Then IPSG takes effect. If you enable IPSG before the switch generates DHCP snooping dynamic binding entries, the switch rejects all packets except DHCP Request packets. In this situation, the hosts with dynamic IP addresses cannot communicate with each other. Therefore, before enabling the IPSG function, configure the DHCP snooping function to enable the switch to generate dynamic binding entries.
