pim-ssm (Provider Tunnel)


Hierarchy Level


Configure the PIM source-specific multicast (SSM) provider tunnel. Use family inet6 pim-ssm for Rosen 7 running on IPv6 . For Rosen 7 on IPv4, use family inet pim-ssm. The customer data-MDT can be configured on IPv4 or IPv6, but not both (the provider space always runs on IPv4). Enable Rosen IPv4 before enabling Rosen IPv6.
