Multi-DC Auto-RP with MSDP Design Question

Most of Cisco design seem to recommend Anycast....then the latest DCAP came out which apppears to combine anycast, auto-rp and msdp but there isn't much sample configs:

I want to setup the multicast base on page 2-46.

I have 3 DC link by a MPLS WAN. On each DC redundant cores, I assume I setup Anycast with MSDP and do Auto-RP on the Anycast RP address.

Assuming Layer 3, on the downstream Distribution and Access, I believe I should setup a static RP pointing to the local DC Cores (ie ip pim rp-address or should I just setup autorp like Edge on next sentence)

On the Edge WAN routers, I will setup "Ip pim autorp listener"

So is the above correct?

I have another question on the "override" option below

*******DC redundant Cores*****

interface Loopback105

description ****MSDP LOCAL PEER ADDRESS****

ip address


interface Loopback106

description ****ANYCAST RP ADDRESS****

ip address

ip pim sparse-mode

ip msdp peer connect-source Loopback105

ip msdp cache-sa-state

ip msdp originator-id Loopback105

ip access-list standard AUTO-RP-CONTROL-GROUP



ip pim rp-address AUTO-RP-CONTROL-GROUP (do I need the “override” option?)

ip pim send-rp-announce scope 16 group-list AUTO-RP-CONTROL-GROUP

ip pim send-rp-discovery scope 16
