IPv6 PIM Sparse Configuration

To configure the device for IPv6 PIM Sparse, perform the following tasks:

  • Enable the IPv6 PIM Sparse of multicast routing.
  • Configure VRF then enable IPv6 Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse mode (PIM-SM) for a specified VRF, if applicable.
  • Configure an IPv6 address on the interface.
  • Enable IPv6 PIM Sparse.
  • Identify the interface as an IPv6 PIM Sparse border, if applicable.
  • Identify the device as a candidate PIM Sparse Bootstrap Router (BSR), if applicable.
  • Identify the device as a candidate PIM Sparse Rendezvous Point (RP), if applicable.
  • Specify the IP address of the RP (if you want to statically select the RP).
Note: It is recommended that you configure the same device as both the BSR and the RP.
