I have some questions related to F2 multicast support: Cisco multicast configuration guide says that “F2 modules do not support any form of IPv4 or IPv6 tunnels” what dose it means? Are they referring to MDF and GRE tunnels? I know PIM-BiDir is not supported, so what is the support multicast protocols? What is max number of (*,G) and (S,G) entries the line card can allow? Dose both ingress and egress replication supported? Can I enable multicast on VRF-lite on F2 module? Especially is the SVI VRF is associated to vPC Could you please list all multicast limitations on F2 module? Can anyone provides a configuration template for SVI VRF is associated to vPC with multicast enabled on F2 cards? Fady Boules

I experienced the same behavior with pseudowires on my 6504E/Sup2T's. I have LDP and CE interfaces present on both active and standby supervisors. EoMPLS traffic arriving on the standby supervisor would not be forwarded out the CE-facing interface. Problem is that LDP fails to populate the standby supervisor's hardware forwarding tables like it does for the active sup and all the line cards. Putting MPLS LDP GRACEFUL-RESTART on the PE's and each of their neighbors fixed it as mentioned previously. Apparently, the GRACEFUL-RESTART code happens to touch the standby sup's forwarding tables.
