This link is for the "ip igmp static-group" command.
From 12.4 multicast command reference
Use the ip igmp static-group command to configure static group membership entries on an interface. When you configure the ip igmp static-group command, packets to the group are fast-switched out the interface, provided that packets were received on the correct reverse path forwarding (RPF) interface. Once configured, static group membership entries are added to the IGMP cache and mroute table.
Configuring the ip igmp static-group command is unlike configuring the ip igmp join-group command, which allows the router to join the multicast group. This configuration of the ip igmp static-group command would cause the upstream routers to maintain the multicast routing table information for that group, which would ensure that all the paths to that multicast group are active.
yep, I am running 12.4...But even that doesn't allow the addition of multiple groups under that command. Well, I don't think that I need it that much. I was trying to test the join of multiple groups without going through each one of them. I was able to test few of them. So, we should be good to go.
Very interesting thread! I am running into a similar issue.Just want to check if the above "ip igmp static-group class-map" command can be used with PIM passive for stub multicast routing..currently i am testing with "ip igmp join-group" and ip pim passive and is working allright, and just want to move to "ip igmp static-group" commands for Production. The application is for MoH Multicast.
