Configuration mode


interfaces interface {
    ipv6 {
        pim {
            mode [dense|dense-passive|sparse|sparse-dense|sparse-dense-passive|sparse-passive]
        }
    }
}

Use this command to specify the PIM mode on an interface. Use the dense or sparse keyword to enable PIM dense mode or PIM sparse mode on an interface. Use the dense-passive or sparse-passive keyword to stop PIM transactions on an interface, allowing only Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) to be active.

Use the set form of this command to specify the PIM mode for an interface.

Use the delete form of this command to disable PIM on an interface.

Use the show form of this command to display the PIM mode configuration.
