Supporting a static RP as primary

A static RP can be configured to operate as either a secondary or primary RP. With the primary option, a dynamic (C-RP) backup is recommended. The precedence of a static RP over a dynamic RP is determined by the following static RP configuration options:
  • override

    enabled on the static RP.

  • A group mask on the static RP that equals or exceeds the group mask on the C-RP for the same multicast group(s.)

For override configuration information, see Statically configuring an RP to accept multicast traffic.
