Configuring PIM Provider Tunnels for an MBGP MVPN

To configure a Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) sparse mode provider tunnel for a multicast VPN, include the pim-asm statement:

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

  • [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name provider-tunnel]

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

To complete the PIM sparse mode provider tunnel configuration, you also need to specify the group address using the group-address option. The source address for a PIM sparse mode provider tunnel is configured to be the loopback address of the loopback interface in the inet.0 routing table.
