Need to figure out how to join a bond interface to a multicast group

Dear experts,

 I don't know where to begin checking configurations for a multi-cast address to be ping throughout the network.

 We have this proxmox servers (linux) hosting our Virtual machines that apparently need to ping the multi-cast address.

 The virtual machines are functional in the network

I read recompiling the network card some where. I don't want to do that if I don't have to

The proxmox servers are connected to a brocade switch VDS640T

I know there is a command that shows multicast traffic


Here is some output about it from the Linux server that hosts the virtual machines:

pvecm status
Version: 6.2.0
Config Version: 23
Cluster Name: smac-vm-clstr01
Cluster Id: 57065
Cluster Member: Yes
Cluster Generation: 37844
Membership state: Cluster-Member
Nodes: 2
Expected votes: 2
Total votes: 2
Node votes: 1
Quorum: 2  
Active subsystems: 5
Flags:
Ports Bound: 0  
Node name: smac-proxmox-03
Node ID: 3
Multicast addresses: 239.192.222.200 ←- that is not responding to ping request
Node addresses: 172.16.200.93

Brocade command out for igmp:

VCS160-1# show ip igmp group ←- no output

And the strangest thing of all is that one of the Linux servers (for the Proxmox VMs) cannot ping the DNS server in the network while able to ping everything else.

For what I understand  we need to figure out how to join a bond interface to a multi-cast group.

I am between what to do in the brocade switches and the Linux servers:

Linux server out put ifconfig -a:
