Hello,

I've all my devices running on switch1 X450e-48p "ExtremeXOS version 12.5.4.5" switch. All of its ports are filled when i added another switch (switch 2) with same os and model behind switch 1 all the multicast traffic from switch 1 to switch 2 is being forwarded on uplink port between switches.

Kindly help to fix this behavior.

What kind of multicast traffic are  you seeing?  Control traffic i.e. PIM exchanges between routers if configured or actual data streams? A multicast stream will not reach an upstream vlan unless there is a host requesting the stream in that destination vlan OR if you have turned off IGMP snooping.
