CAn HP Procurve 2800 2810 switches do Network Load Balancing using Multicast

What I'd like to do is to configure static Multicast MAC address in the switch's CAM table so that it knows how to switch multicast traffic appropriately instead of flooding.

On the Cisco switch, the command is something similar to

- mac-address-table static 0100.5e7f.3359 vlan 51 interface GigabitEthernet2/0/5 GigabitEthernet1/0/5

where I'm commanding the switch to forward multicast traffic 0100.5e7f.3359 onto vlan51 on physical interface GigabitEthernet2/0/5 and GigabitEthernet1/0/5.


The reason behind the multiple interface is because I'm configuring Microsoft NLB using multicast.
