    NSX-V - Multicast within Logical Switch

    yhum Lurker



      I have a few VMs attached to same Logical Switch in NSX but spread across multiple ESXi hosts. They join the same multicast group and send multicast other others for heartbeat/healthcheck. Is multicast supported within a logical switch by default or do I need to configure IGMP snooping or Querier or some multicast related configuration on Logical Switch/DLR/ESG?

      The Transport Zone and Logical Switch is configured in Unicast Mode but I don't think I have to change the mode to Multicast or Hybrid because it matter for underlay network.


      I will appreciate any input.
