We encountered one problem with multicast behavior after software upgrade on our Cat3750.
Our used network topology is shown below:
H_1 ? is multicast Receiver;
H_2 ? is multicast Receiver;
H_3 ? is multicast Sender and Receiver;
R1 ? is Cisco7606;
R2 ? is Cat_3750 with IOS c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-35.SE1;
RP ? is another router which perform Rendezvous point function;
H_3 is multicast sender and receiver which sending and requesting the same multicast group.
Then if receiver H_1 or H_2 request this multicast group they will have to wait certain period of time (more then 2min) while they will get this traffic.
They will receive multicast traffic only when R flag in (S, G) entry on router R1 will change from R to T.
If one of the receivers (H_1) is already receiving multicast traffic for this group and other receiver H_2 will request this group again it will receive multicast traffic immediately without any delay.
We encountered this problem also with IOS versions:
There is no this problem with 12.2(25)SEC1 (but this version has security holes and we don?t want to use it).
Is it possible to know in which IOS release it will be or it is fixed?
