Have a network that has 2 C-RPs and an elected BSR.
When a PIMv2 BSR router somewhere in the network receives the group-to-RP mappings from it's PIM neighbor, The group-to-RP mapping (RP-set) has two entries to the for the multicast group. One to RP1 and one to RP2.
The router then runs the BSR hashing algorithm and it selects one of the RPs to be active for that multicast group on that router.
What is the selection mechanism, does the hash algorithm just pick the C-RP with the lowest/highest IP address as the active RP for the group?
From the RPs with the highest priority (i.e. lowest `Priority' value), the candidate with the highest resulting value is then chosen as the RP for that group, and its identity and hash value are stored with the entry created.
Ties between RPs having the same hash value and priority, are broken in advantage of the highest address.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
[toc:faq]Introduction:Netdr is a tool available on a RSP720, Sup720 or

in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
