System image file is "bootflash:cat4000-i5s-mz.122-20.EWA4.bin ..
is the support for multicast inside a vrf available for 4506 ? if yes what version should i upgrade to ??
This feature does not seem to be supported on 4500. I could not find it for 4500 in feature navigator and not in the configuration guide either. I saw that it was supported for 3750, 6500, 7600 and so on.
On the version that you are running at this moment, version 12.2(20)EWA4, multicast routing VRF is not supported, however, looking on the configuration guide for the 4500 I found the command enable after the version 12.2(50)SG:
(Log in is needed):
Switch(config-vrf)# ip multicast-routing vrf
(Optional) Enables global multicast routing for VRF table.
Check if the version 12.2(50)SG is compatible with the supervisor engine that you have on the 4506 prior to upgrade to the IOS version
i think their is documentation error.
i have upgraded to
