    Configuring BFD Protocol for PIM for IPv6

    To enable BFD (bidirectional forwarding detection) and define BFD values to more quickly detect PIM data path failures:

    • Issue the ipv6 pim bfd-liveness-detection command in Interface Configuration mode.
      host1(config-if)#ipv6 pim bfd-liveness-detection minimum-interval 800

      The no version disables BFD on the PIM interface.

      Note: Before the router can use the ipv6 pim bfd-liveness-detection command, you must specify a BFD license key. To view an already configured license, use the show license bfd command.

    For details on liveness detection negotiation, see Negotiation of the BFD Liveness Detection Interval in the JunosE IP Services Configuration Guide.

    Note: You can configure multicast on IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces. For information about configuring PIM on IPv4 interfaces, see Unresolved xref.
    For information about configuring IP interfaces, see Configuring IP in the JunosE IP, IPv6, and IGP Configuration Guide. For information about configuring IPv6 interfaces, see Configuring IPv6 in the JunosE IP, IPv6, and IGP Configuration Guide.
