IP Multicast in ExtremeWare
Hi,

I'm trying to configure PIM-SM on an Extreme 1i switch running v7.2b25 &
I'm a little confused on how to restrict the RP to a couple of
candidates. Here's my config:

create access-profile "MCAST-DOMAIN" type ipaddress
configure access-profile "MCAST-DOMAIN" add 5 permit ipaddress 224.0.0.0/4

enable pim
configure pim cbsr vlan "VLAN400" 0
configure pim add vlan "VLAN400" sparse
configure pim crp "VLAN400" "MCAST-DOMAIN" 0
configure pim add vlan "VLAN300" sparse
configure pim crp static 153.104.0.1 "MCAST-DOMAIN" 0


I have configured MCAST-DOMAIN to the entire multicast address range to
that I may come back later & restrict it to some subnet. I want
153.104.0.1 to be the RP, but 153.104.0.60, another router, appears
instead. I know that PIM picks the largest ip address, but I'm trying
to override it by configuring the static entry. I'm probably missing
something simple, but I don't see it. What's worse is Extreme's
documentation - little description, few examples.

Thanks in advance,

-John
