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.

multicast on vrf on 4506 switches

Hello people,

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):

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.2/50sg/configuration/guide/vrf.html#wp1063444

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

Hi Ehtesham,

You need supervisor 6-E for this to work.
