not able to enable multicast on cisco 3560 swtich

I have checked the Cisco Feature Navigator for this release and it says that this software with the IP Base license should support PIM Multicast routing. So it looks like it is not a licensing issue.

Have you enabled ip multicast routing?

not able to enable multicast on cisco 3560 swtich

These sort of switch model before you configure PIM under interfaces you have to enable multicast globally using below command. Pls check whether you have configured it

"ip multicast-routing distributed"
