Is GVRP on the road map to be included in EXOS at any point ?

Any update of GVRP features? This feature is very helpful on other products.

Hello Gene,

GVRP is a GARP application that provides 802.1Q-compliant VLAN pruning and dynamic VLAN creation on 802.1Q trunk ports.With GVRP, the switch can exchange VLAN configuration information with other GVRP switches, prune unnecessary broadcast and unknown unicast traffic, and dynamically create and manage VLANs on switches that are connected through 802.1Q trunk ports.

In EXOS:You must be in 15.3.2

Multiple Registration Protocol/Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol is used for dynamically creating

VLANs and/or dynamically adding ports to VLANs. As per IEEE Std 802.1Q-2011, some VLANs can be

marked as forbidden VLANs on some ports so that when MVRP PDU is received on the port with the

particular forbidden VLAN Id, the VLAN is not created and if the VLAN is already there, the port is not

added to the VLAN.

The VLAN registration is of three types:

• Forbidden—Port is forbidden to be added to the VLAN

• Normal—Port is allowed to be added to the VLAN

• Fixed—Port is statically added to the VLAN

Hi Parthiban! thanks for the reply, we decided to replace the dell switch with a new x670v switch, making it easier to use MVR

Hi Parthiban,

How about compatibility between GVRP capable switch with MVR on EXOS? Our existing devices are not MVR capable.

Best regards,
