Cannot enable PIM dense mode on Cisco 3750E SVI

I just replaced a failed Cisco 3750G with a Cisco 3750E, and I can't seem to get access to the "ip pim dense-mode" subinterface command. I checked the Cisco feature navigator and tried out these images with no luck:

 

c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-53.SE2.bin

c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE11.bin

c3750e-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE12.bin

From the document you linked to - 

 

Note The IP base image contains only PIM stub routing. The IP services image contains complete multicast routing. On a switch running the IP base image, if you try to configure a VLAN interface with PIM dense-mode, sparse-mode, or dense-sparse-mode, the configuration is not allowed.

 

So you need to have IP Services and you are running IP Base on your switch.

Hi Balaji,

Sure. I also tried 12.2(58)SE2:

 

SWITCH(config)#do sh run | i pim
SWITCH(config)#do sh run | i multicast
ip multicast-routing distributed
SWITCH(config)#

 

SWITCH#config t
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
SWITCH(config)#int vlan 170
SWITCH(config-if)#ip pim dense-mode
^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

SWITCH(config-if)#ip pim ?
passive Enable PIM passive interface operation

SWITCH(config-if)#do sh run int vlan170
Building configuration...

end

SWITCH(config-if)#

Your version does not support what you looking, you need IPSERVICE.
