Now my company want use ipv6 MLD snooping but when i read document it tell me it not support

This release does not support MLD snooping. If any IPv6 host on a VLAN registers for an IPv6 multicast
group, traffic for the IPv6 multicast group is flooded to all ports on the VLAN.

but that spec it list it support this function.....

why ?

MLD Snooping is supported in XoS.

As from 12.6.1 LA there should also be a knob that you could use to globally disable MLD to avoid bumping into port security violations when you enable v6 onto a vlan.. It does however only disable MLD and leaves MLD Snoop enabled by default to avoid the broadcasts being send to all devices.. (from Erik_Bais)
