mdt source Loopback0

Hi,

I am always confused with "mdt source Loopback0" command. Should we put this under Multicast IPV4 or Multicast VRF IPV4. I am pasting both, please suggest.

 

multicast-routing
 address-family ipv4
  mdt source Loopback0

OR


multicast-routing
 VRF TEST
  address-family ipv4
   mdt source Loopback0

    mdt default 239.255.100.100

Hello, Trust you are doing

Hello,

 

Trust you are doing good.

 

Considering you are using this command on the PE router and the loopback 0 is in the global routing table, the first option is correct.

multicast-routing
 address-family ipv4
  mdt source Loopback0

 

Hence loopback 0 IP would become the source for the Multicast distribution Tree sourced from this PE.

 

Thanks,

Mohit
