There is a new feature called Multicast Snooping introducted in ESXi 6.0 -> http://pubs.vmware.com/vsphere-60/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.vsphere.networking.doc%2FGUID-50AF72...

Is it possible to configure it through ESXi shell (ssh)?

This is turned on at the VDS level, so i would say it may be possible with powercli, but doubtful via the ssh host shell.

the only options i see for vds from the host shell are:

[root@T%%%%~] esxcli network vswitch dvs vmware

Usage: esxcli network vswitch dvs vmware {cmd} [cmd options]

Available Namespaces:

  lacp                  A set of commands for LACP related operations

Available Commands:

  list                  List the VMware vSphere Distributed Switch currently configured on the ESXi host.

Thanks.

I'll look into powercli.

So far I was able to find only mentioned method via vSphere Web client.

Unfortunately I don't have access to Web Client with Free version of ESXi.
