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

1

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.)

Prohibit DHCP broadcast packets on S series switch
ACL rules can be configured on S series switches (except S1700 switches) to deny DHCP broadcast packets on specified interfaces. For example, you can deny DHCP broadcast packets on GE0/0/1 as follows: 1. Create advanced ACL 3001 and configure a rule to deny DHCP broadcast packets. [Huawei] acl 3001 [Huawei-acl-adv-3001] rule deny udp destination-port eq 67 source-port eq 68 //Configure an ACL rule to deny DHCP broadcast packets. [Huawei-acl-adv-3001] quit 2. Configure the traffic classifier tc1 to classify packets that match ACL 3001. [Huawei] traffic classifier tc1 [Huawei-classifier-tc1] if-match acl 3001 [Huawei-classifier-tc1] quit 3. Configure the traffic behavior tb1 to deny packets. [Huawei] traffic behavior tb1 [Huawei-behavior-tb1] deny [Huawei-behavior-tb1] quit 4. Define a traffic policy and associate the traffic classifier and traffic behavior with the traffic policy. [Huawei] traffic policy tp1 [Huawei-trafficpolicy-tp1] classifier tc1 behavior tb1 [Huawei-trafficpolicy-tp1] quit 5. Apply the traffic policy to GE0/0/1. [Huawei] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 [Huawei-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] traffic-policy tp1 inbound [Huawei-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit
