    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Defines a router as a rendezvous point (RP) router candidate. The no version stops the router from being an RP candidate.


    • interfaceType—Interface type; see Interface Types and Specifiers
    • interfaceSpecifier—Particular interface; format varies according to interface type; see Interface Types and Specifiers. The autoRP announcement messages will contain the IP address for this interface.
    • accessListName—Access list containing the set of group prefixes supported by this C-RP. If no group-list is specified, the default value is the entire multicast address range.

      Note: Because BSR has no mechanism for distributing negative entries, you should not configure negative access-list entries (also called deny access-list entries).

    • holdTime—Amount of time in the range 1–65535 seconds that the BSR keeps an RP in its C-RP list if the BSR does not receive a C-RP advertisement message; default value is 150 seconds
    • priority—Priority field value in the range 0–255 that the C-RP sends to the BSR in C-RP advertisement messages. In the RP election process, the RP with the lower priority value is preferred; default value is 192
    • interval—Interval in the range 1–65535 seconds at which the C-RP sends advertisement messages to the BSR; default value is 60 seconds
