Configuring a Local Address for an Anycast-RP

Configuring a Local Address for an Anycast-RP

When sending a PIM Register message to all Anycast-RP peers, the local Rendezvous Point (RP) needs to use its own IP address (called the local address) as the source address of the Register message.


The routers functioning as Anycast-RPs can be identified by the same logical address so that the RP in the PIM-SM domain is unique. However, the routers need to distinguish one another during the communication, so the Anycast-RP address cannot be used. To resolve this issue, configure a local address for the Anycast-RP.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run pim [ vpn-instance vpn-instance-name ]

    The PIM view is displayed.

  3. Run anycast-rp rp-address

    The Anycast-RP view is displayed.

  4. Run local-address local-address

    A local address is set for the Anycast-RP.


    Setting a Loopback interface address as the local address of the Anycast-RP is recommended.

    The local address must be different from the Anycast-RP address.

  5. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
