Do S series switches support static multicast MAC addresses

25

S series switches (except the S1700) support static multicast MAC addresses in V100R006 and later versions. However, the support for this function varies depending on switch models.
- S2700SI/S2700EI: not supported
- S3700SI/S3700EI: not supported
- S5710-C-LI: not supported
- S5700SI: supported in V200R003 and later versions

Do S series switches support static multicast routes
For S series switches, static multicast routes are supported only by S series modular switches, S3700EI, S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI. You can run the igmp static-group command to configure a static multicast group, and the ip rpf-route-static command to configure a static multicast route.

S series switches' support for MAC address authentication
S series switches (except the S1700) support MAC address authentication as follows: - In V100R006, switches except the S2700SI and S2710SI support MAC address authentication. - In versions later than V100R006, all switches support MAC address authentication.

Whether S series switches support IPSG
All S series switches except the following support IPSG: S1700 switches S2700-SI switches W series cards of S7700, S9700, and S1270 switches S9300 of earlier versions than V100R002 For switches that do not support IPSG, you can run the mac-address static vlan command to configure static MAC addresses and run the mac-address learning disable command to disable MAC address learning on interfaces to realize a function similar to IPSG.
