IGMP and IGMP snooping for Aruba 2930M

Hi community.

As far as I know, IGMP and IGMP snooping are two different features.

IGMP (v1 or v2 or v3) is a L3 protocol, and IGMP snooping is a feature that works at L2 and for switches that are not L3 necessarily.

Checking the "Aruba 2930F / 2930M Multicast and Routing Guide for ArubaOS-Switch 16.06" manual, chapter 2: Multimedia Traffic Control with IP Multicast (IGMP), I see that 2930M support IGMP snooping, but I do not see any section that says IGMPv3 is supported by the this switch.

Can anybody confirm me that 2930M supports IGMPv3 (I am not talking about IGMP snooping support)?



PS: If you feel this information is useful and solved your question or problem, please do not forget to mark it as a solution and give me some kudos.

Hi Pedro, 


IGMPv3 is supported on the 2930F/M Switch Series.


For future reference, you can always refer to the software feature matrix which shows which features are supported on specific platforms.




Here's a snippet from a 2930:

Switch(vlan-10)# ip igmp version
<2-3> The protocol version to use; the default is 2.


The ip igmp command turns on snooping as well as IGMP support.
