Auto-RP

Hi R&S experts,

While reviewing auto-rp to day I came up with a though of how to select an RP with a lower IP address if you had 2 RP's reaching the mapping agent.

After doing some research I was unable to come up with a way to prefer the RP with the lower IP address.

Anyone have an idea on how you can have the mapping agent choose the RP with the lower ip address?

    This is the first thing that comes to mind for me.

     

         ip pim rp-announce-filter rp-list R4 group-list R4_GROUPS

     !!!             access-lists   R4  and   R4_GROUPS

             OR

     

       ip pim accept-rp  X.X.X.X   44 <--group

    Hi Andy,

    Unlike BSR, we don't have priority option in Auto-RP configuration. I think JoeM has given a good option for you since heighest RP is choosen by default.

     

  • Thanks guys for your responces.

    My goal was to have two Auto RP's be active for the mapping agent and the mapping agent choose the RP with the lower IP.

    I believe by your responses and what I've been able to look up that this is just not possible.

    Once again thank you for your responces.

    Andy
