Layer 3 Switch ICX 7150 : PIM configuration

Hi,
I used to configure router PIM on HP switches to route multicast between VLANs, I need to know how can i do that on Ruckus switches?
DTV ( channels streamer) on VLAN 120
Clients on VLAN 8  

My Config on HP switch is as fallow 
ip multicast-routing
router pim
   enable
   rp-address 192.168.15.253 224.0.0.0 240.0.0.0
   exit

vlan 8
   ip pim-sparse
      ip-addr any
      exit
   exit

vlan 120
   ip pim-sparse
      ip-addr any
      exit
   exit

vlan 8
   untagged 5,7
   ip address 192.168.15.253 255.255.248.0
   tagged 15-24
   ip igmp
   exit

vlan 120
   name "DTVNET"
   untagged 13-14
   ip address 192.168.120.254 255.255.255.0
   ip igmp
   exit

Good Morning.   Yeah, that looks like a ProCurve configuration... haven't done one of those in 9 years, but...

You should be able to do pim on quite a few Ruckus ICX devices.  It should work on the 7150 provided you do NOT have the 8 port unit, and provided you have the licence per:
https://webresources.ruckuswireless.com/pdf/datasheets/ds-icx-7150.pdf

To enable the feature in global configureation
router pim

The same command the HP uses can also be added to an interface:
 ip pim-sparse

Often the difference is that the interface name will be something like interface ve 8 on the Ruckus device; since, that is the SVI or VRI.

Here is the article you want to read:

Hi Mohamed,

In addition to the above, PIM is a l3-prem feature and needs to have license activated on the switch, refer the below link.
