ACE in bridged mode and multicast

We have configured an ACE SM in bridge mode and have a requirement to enable multicast on one of the networks where the back-end servers are residing. Will ACE support multicast out of the box, or will we need to do any tweaking on the ACE to enable the multicast support?

Thanks..

Re: ACE in bridged mode and multicast

Multicast packets will be bridge like any other packets.

However, can't route multicast traffic or loadbalance or do anything with it.  Just bridging.  Nothing special to be done. This is on by default on bridged interface.

ACE in bridged mode and multicast

Hi Gilles,

Is it also supported in routed mode?

The ace isn't doing multicast routing right?

Actually, the server-side vlan is being routed on the C6500 and has pim sparse-dense mode enabled.

We want to move this server-side vlan behind the ace in routed mode. What about the pim?

Any ideas?

thanks,

Dario
