Usage Guidelines

PIM snooping does not require PIM to be enabled. However, IGMP snooping must be disabled on VLANs that use PIM snooping. PIM snooping and MVR cannot be enabled simultaneously on a switch. PIM snooping should not be enabled on a VLAN that supports PIM-DM neighbors.


The following example enables PIM snooping on the default VLAN:

enable pim snooping default
