Use this command to enable Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) on a vif.

This command enables MLD operation in stand-alone mode, and can be used to learn local membership information prior to enabling a multicast routing protocol on the vif.

This command can only be issued on VLAN interfaces.

Note: Enabling IP on a vif enables the host-side functionality of MLD by default. The set interfaces dataplane interface-name vif vif-id ipv6 mld command enables the router-side functionality of the MLD on the given vif.
Note: To use MLD for multicast routing, multicast routing must be enabled on the router. For information about multicast routing in general, see the Ciena Vyatta Network OS Multicast Routing Configuration Guide.

Use the set form of this command to enable MLD on a vif.

Use the delete form of this command to remove all MLD configuration and disable MLD on a vif.

Use the show form of this command to display MLD configuration for a vif.
