I am playing with PIM-SM running on Linux hosts (pimd) and would like to establish PIM adjacency between Cumulus VX and my Linux VM hosts.

Is it possible to run PIM-SM on bridge interface VLAN10? It doesn't seem to work with minimal config as below.


## Upstream port
interface swp1
ip pim sm
address 172.16.0.1/31

## Upstream port
interface swp2
ip pim sm
address 172.16.0.5/31

interface swp3
ip pim sm

interface swp4
ip pim sm

interface swp5
ip pim sm

interface VLAN10
address 10.0.101.1/24
bridge-ports swp3 swp4 swp5
bridge-vlan-aware no

Add `ip pim sm` under `interface VLAN10` in FRR.

As you appear to be running pim on the host, what version of the linux kernel are you using? You need 4.18 or newer
