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.

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.
