Disabling PIM6 SM Snooping Globally

If PIM6 SM snooping has been enabled, you can disable it globally. One scenario where PIM6 SM snooping does not work, is on a PIM6 dense mode router which does not send join messages. When disabling PIM6 SM, you may also want to disable IPv6 multicast traffic reduction.

  1. Enter global configuration mode.
    device# configure terminal
  2. To disable PIM6 SM snooping, enter the no ipv6 pimsm-snooping command.
    device(config)# no ipv6 pimsm-snooping
  3. If you also want to disable IPv6 multicast traffic reduction, enter the no ipv6 multicast command.
    device(config)# no ipv6 multicast
