The set protocols pimsm4 static-rps rp command configures the IP address of a static RP.
set protocols pimsm4 static-rps rp <rp-address>
Specifies address of a static RP. The address is in dotted decimal notation.
A PIM-SM router must either run the PIM-SM bootstrap mechanism to elect a dynamic RP, or have some RPs configured as static RP settings.
When both static RP and dynamic RP are configured, PIM routers will elect an RP from multiple C-RPs and the static RPs.
To ensure the static RP function works properly, all devices in the PIM-SM domain must be configured with the same RPs.
