Techniques are described for providing an optimized way of switching from a default Multicast Distribution Tree (MDT) to a data MDT to handle two key use-cases in Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) / Tenant Routed Multicast (TRM). The first key use-case is an Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI) failover case over a multihomed network in an EVPN fabric. The second use-case is host mobility.
