what is the selection process exactly !
thanks a lot !
If multiple ip pim rp-address commands are configured, the following rules apply:
•Highest RP IP address selected regardless of reachability: If a multicast group is matched by the access list of more than one configured ip pim rp-address command, then the RP for the group is determined by the RP with the highest RP address configured.
