The construction of multicast distribution trees where the root and receivers are located in different LISP sites [RFC6830] is defined in [RFC6831]. Creation of (root-EID,G) state in the root site requires that unicast LISP-encapsulated Join/Prune messages be sent from an ETR on the receiver site to an ITR on the root site. The term "EID" is short for "Endpoint ID".

                           PIM Join Attributes          for Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) Environments


   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 Locator/ID Separation Protocol    (LISP) sites.  These attributes allow the receiver site to select    between unicast and multicast underlying transport and to convey the    RLOC (Routing Locator) address of the receiver ETR (Egress Tunnel    Router) to the control plane of the root ITR (Ingress Tunnel Router).
