ip pim sparse mode not working anymore but sparse-dense does
I have a very flat network. All of the gateways/SVI's exist on the same 6500. There are some vBrick IPTV servers that have a unicast address and 2-3 multicast addresses configured. After rebooting the 6500, the ip pim sparse-mode we had on all of our SVI's no longer work. I checked the old config and everything is the same as before I rebooted it. I troubleshot this for a while and found that the only way I can make this work now is if I enable ip sparse-dense on the SVI's. I believe this means that dense is the multicast method being used and I don't want to use dense mode because of all the flooding. How might I be able to make ip pim sparse-mode work again? I never had a static RP configured but I think I will need to. How do I decide on what ip address on the 6500 I should use as the RP? Should the ip address of the RP be a loopback address on the 6500 or should it be the SVI gateway ip of the vlan that the vBrick IPTV servers are on?
