Configuration register is 0xF

When I try to enable pim on interface, there is no commands(ip pim sparse/dance) on inteface level

#sh run | i multi

ip multicast-routing distributed

#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

(config)#int vlan 84

(config-if)#ip pim ?

  passive  Enable PIM passive interface operation

(config-if)#ip pim

Why it happens? Thanks

You are currently running the IPBASE license. You need a higher license, e.g. IPSERVICES, to run full multicast routing. Currently, your multilayer switch supports only what is called PIM Stub Routing which is a strongly scaled-down capability of PIM participation, and is suitable only for routed access layer deployments.

Best regards,
