NLB on nexus 9K

Hi,

 

I have a requirement to setup IGMP multicast mode on Nexus 9k switches to support Microsoft NLB.

I have gone through the article  https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus9000/sw/9-x/multicast/configuration/guide/b_Cisco_Nexus_9000_Series_NX-OS_Multicast_Routing_Configuration_Guide_9x/b_Cisco_Nexus_9000_Series_NX-OS_Multicast_Routing_Configuration_Guide_9x...

and found out that "hardware profile multicast nlb" should be enabled on 9k switches to support IGMP multicast mode.

however, my switches don't support that command.

these are the options I have when I put that commnd.

(config)# hardware profile multicast ?
flex-stats-enable            Enable real time stats
max-limit                        Maximum limit for multicast entries
rpf-check-optimization   RPF Check optimization on Monticello ASIC
service-reflect                Service-reflect settings
