Valid (vlan)interfaces do not get vif reporting "Invalid phyint address"
PIMD still not properly working. So I opened tow FeeBSD Bugs. This one is FreeBSD bug 248103.
Also see https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=248103
For info, monitoring and follow up.
Copied from FreeBSD
I try to get PIMD running on latest pfsense development release based on 2.1. That does not work because the majority of my vlan's are not handled correctly by the FreeBSD "multicast kernel".
The valid interfaces are rejected as "Invalid phyint address 'ix0.14'"
- my system has 1 em interface, 2 1G igb interfaces used as lagg, 2 10G ix interfaces (x520)
- all physical interfaces are carrying multiple vlans's
- all used interface drivers are based on iflib
Below a piece of pimd output showing the problem. In the "report" you can see that three vlans are treated the way in should .... five not ....
This bug might be related to FreeBSD bug #246629 (not sure)

#1 Updated by Louis van Breda about 1 month ago
I am testing an early PIMD-3-beta at the moment. I do that in cooperation with the PIMD-maintainer.
Version3 does fix a lot of things!! Know that the actual version has been designed years ago when FreeBSD did behave different. In opposite to the actual PIMD version, the new version does work on my system :)
When version-3 becomes publicly available, some changes in the pfSense-package will be required since the new version is not 1:1 compatible with the actual version.
