    PIM Configuration Statements

    To configure Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM), include the pim statement:

    pim {
    default-vpn-source {
    interface-name interface-name;
    }
    addresses;
    }
    import [ policy-names ];
    interface interface-name {
    mode bidirectional-sparse | bidirectional-sparse-dense | (dense | sparse | sparse-dense);
    neighbor-policy [ policy-names ];
    override-interval milliseconds;
    priority number;
    propagation-delay milliseconds;
    version version;
    }
    automatic;
    }
    join-prune-timeout;
    nonstop-routing {
    disable;
    }
    override-interval milliseconds;
    propagation-delay milliseconds;
    inet group-name;
    inet6 group-name;
    }
    rp {
    (announce | discovery | mapping);
    }
    address address {
    destination-ip-prefix</prefix-length>;
    }
    hold-time seconds;
    priority number;
    }
    }
    family (inet | inet6) {
    export [ policy-names ];
    import [ policy-names ];
    priority number;
    }
    }
    bootstrap-export [ policy-names ];
    bootstrap-import [ policy-names ];
    dr-register-policy [ policy-names ];
    destination-ip-prefix</prefix-length>;
    }
    }
    family (inet | inet6) {
    address address;
    address address <forward-msdp-sa>;
    }
    local-address address;
    }
    destination-ip-prefix</prefix-length>;
    }
    hold-time seconds;
    priority number;
    }
    }
    rp-register-policy [ policy-names ];
    address address {
    version version;
    destination-ip-prefix</prefix-length>;
    }
    infinity [ policy-names ];
    }
    file filename <files number> <size size> <world-readable | no-world-readable>;
    flag flag <flag-modifier> <disable>;
    }
    }
    }
    }
    }

    You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

    • [edit protocols]
    • [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]
    • [edit logical-systems logical-system-name protocols]
    • [edit logical-systems logical-system-name routing-instances routing-instance-name protocols]

    By default, PIM is disabled.

    Note: You cannot configure PIM within a nonforwarding instance. If you try to do so, the router displays a commit check error and does not complete the configuration commit process.
