Description (partial)

If two subinterfaces are defined using the same physical interface, and 
pim is disabled on one of the subinterfaces, this might  cause 
 multicast to fail on the other subinterfaces attached to that same 
physical interface.


# If multicast, and two sub-interfaces are configured like below:

 interface Ethernet0/0.10
   vlan 10
   nameif dmz1
   security-level 80
   ip address
 interface Ethernet0/0.100
   vlan 100
   nameif 100
   security-level 60
   ip address

# Disabling PIM on one of the interfaces (like below), will cause multicast traffic on the other 
subinterface to fail
ciscoasa# conf t
 ciscoasa(config)# int E0/0.100
 ciscoasa(config-subif)# no pim
 ciscoasa(config-subif)# end

More than one subinterface must be configured for a single physical interface, and 
multicast routing must be enabled.
