This is fine, each group will have unique MLID though they have same
characteristics, I am trying to know is,
as in unicast LID assignment there is a file maintained by SM, so for MLID
is there any such mapping file or this is maintained in some internal
structure, or every create request with new MGID will be given One higher
MLID from MLID assigned to previous create request and as the
switchInfo::MulticastFDBCap is reached, create request will fail?
MLIDs start at 0xC000 and are constrained by the least capable switch
