Technical Summary This document defines two PIM Join/Prune attributes that support the construction of multicast distribution trees where the root and receivers are located in different LISP sites. These attributes allow the receiver site to select between unicast and multicast underlay transport and to convey the receiver ETR's RLOC address to the control plane of the root ITR. Working Group Summary There were several comments on the mailing list during the WGLC. Both the PIM and LISP WG's were included. All comments have been addressed. Document Quality At least two vendors have indicated that they have implemented the functionality documented in this draft. Personnel Document Shepherd: Mike McBride, PIM WG co-chair. Alvaro Retana is the Area Director.
