    no ipv6 pim bsr-candidate

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Defines a router as a bootstrap router (BSR) candidate. The no version disables the router BSR candidacy.


    • 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.
    • hashMaskLen—Length in the range 1–128 bits of the hash mask length field sent in BSMs that the router originates. This mask is combined with the group address before the router calls the hash function. For example, specifying a value of 32 limits the group address to the first 32 bits. The default and maximum hash mask length is 126 bits
    • priority—Value in the range 0–255 of the BSR-Priority field of BSMs that the router originates. In the BSR election process, the BSR with the higher priority is preferred. If the priority values are equal, the router with the higher IP address becomes the BSR. The default value is 0 (address comparison only)
    • bootstrapPeriod—Interval in the range 1–65535 seconds at which the BSR sends bootstrap messages; default value is 60 seconds
