    NSX 6.4.3 - Transport zone set to Unicast - possible to have multicast between VMs connected to the same logical switch?

    Enter123 Novice

      Hi,

       

      I have NSX environment, version 6.4.3, Unicast set on the transport zone. Is it possible to allow multicast only for VMs connected to the same logical switch? So these VMs should be using multicast between each other.

       

      From Documentation:

       

      Prerequisites

      Transport Zones must have a multicast address range configured. See Assign a Segment ID Pool and Multicast Address Range in the NSX Installation Guide.

      IGMP configuration must be the same across the Edge Services Gateway and the Logical (Distributed) Router.

      Enable IGMP snooping on the L2 switches to which VXLAN participating hosts are attached. If IGMP snooping is enabled on L2, IGMP querier must be enabled on the router or L3 switch with connectivity to multicast enabled networks

       

      Does it mean I can enable it only on the Transport zone level?

       

      Thanks
