Configures an IP interface for PIM.
|ipv4||Specifies the IPv4 address family.|
|ipv6||Specifies the IPv6 address family.|
|vlan-name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|all||Specifies all VLANs.|
|dense||Specifies PIM dense mode (PIM-DM). (Default mode.)|
|sparse||Specifies PIM sparse mode (PIM-SM).|
|passive||Specifies a passive interface.|
When an IP interface is created, per-interface PIM configuration is disabled by default.
The switch supports both dense mode and sparse mode operation. You can configure dense mode or sparse mode on a per-interface basis. After they are enabled, some interfaces can run dense mode, while others run sparse mode.
Passive interfaces are host only interfaces that allow a multicast stream from other VLANs to be forwarded to edge hosts. Since they do not peer with other PIM routers, you should not connect a multicast router to a passive interface.
In order for the interface to participate in PIM, PIM must be globally enabled on the switch using the following command: enable pim
The following example enables PIM-DM multicast routing on VLAN accounting:
configure pim add vlan accounting dense
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
The passive option was added in ExtremeXOS 11.1.
The IPv4 and IPv6 options were added in ExtremeXOS 15.3.
This command is available on platforms that support the appropriate license. For complete information about software licensing, including how to obtain and upgrade your license and which licenses support the PIM feature, see the Switch Engine 32.3 Feature License Requirements document.
