Hoping to find some help here. I have 2 ex3300's switches connected together via VPLS. They are connected via VPLS because they are a few thousand miles apart.
I've enable PIM and IGMP snooping on both switches. Both switches see each other, I can ping across and PIM neighbor adjacencies are formed.
I turn on a multicast source on switch B but the multicast route does not show up on switch A. If I set a static group on both switches then then route shows up and I and join the group and watch the video.
But manually inputting the groups is not something I want to do and it's time consuming. PIM should propgate the multicast route automagically yes?
What does this have to do with routing? Well I'm thinking maybe I'm missing something in my VPLS config? Here's my routing-instance config:
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link instance-type vpls
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link interface xe-0/0/1.1005
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link protocols vpls interface xe-0/0/1.1005
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link protocols vpls no-tunnel-services
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link protocols vpls vpls-id 202
set routing-instances A_to_B_video_link protocols vpls neighbor xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Do I need to put any pim or igmp configurations in the routing instance? Let me know if you want to see the PIM stuff on the EX's.
