I am experimenting with multicast within an ACI fabric, but I cannot seem to get multicast entries to propagate to switches other than the LHR switches.
I have currently configured ACI accordingly:
- BD-MULTICAST - EPG-RECEIVE
The receive and source EPGs both provide and consume a contract which allows all types of traffic to be past between them.
I have enabled multicast on the VRF level, and "ticked" the checkbox under the BD to be a PIM domain.
L2 Unknown Unicast: Hardware Proxy
L3 Unknown Multicast Flooding: Flood
Multi Destination Flooding: Flood in BD
I have also attached a subnet to the BD with the IP address range of the sources.
But whenever I type the command
show ip mroute vrf TEST:VRF-TEST
I only see the multicast routing entries for receivers and senders which are directly connected to said leaf. Is there anyway that I can propagate this multicast routing information to other switches within the ACI fabric? Do I need to enable Fabric RP or anything likewise?
