Document all enabled interfaces for PIM in the network's multicast topology diagram. Disable support for PIM on interfaces that are not required to support it.

R5(config)#int g1/1
R5(config-if)#no ip pim sparse-mode

Check Contents

Step 1: Review the network's multicast topology diagram.

Step 2: Review the router configuration to verify that only the PIM interfaces as shown in the multicast topology diagram are enabled for PIM as shown in the example below:

interface GigabitEthernet1/1
ip address 10.1.3.3 255.255.255.0
ip pim sparse-mode

If an interface is not required to support multicast routing and it is enabled, this is a finding.
