I have setup a l2vpn with a vfi and bridge domain. Unicast is working fine, but I cannot get link local multicast. The CEs need to have OSPF adjacency without neighbor statements to make the PE-PE connection look as transparent as possible to the CE. I was under the impression that multicast, broadcast, and unknown unicast would be flooded but it does not seem to be working this way.
It is probably something simple but I cannot get it working.
One of the ASR1001 routers has the following configs. The other 2 ASR1001 have similar configs.
OSPF between CE's are not forming adjacency unless I manaually set the ospf network type to 'nonbroadcast' and use 'neighbor' commands. RIP and eigrp are not working either. Multicast traffic simply does not go through the VPLS.
I tried using vfi auto discovery but failed even for unicast traffic.
