Command History

This guide is platform-specific. For command information about other platforms, see the relevant Dell EMC Networking OS Command Line Reference Guide.

Introduced on the S6010-ON and S4048T-ON.
Added support for association of an IP address with multicast MAC address on the S4810, S4820T, S6000, and Z9000 platforms.
Usage Information
For multicast mode of NLB, to associate an IP address with a multicast MAC address in the switch, use address resolution protocol (ARP) by entering the arp ip-address multicast-mac-address command in Global configuration mode. This setting causes the multicast MAC address to be mapped to the cluster IP address for NLB mode of operation of the switch.
