Configuring a BSR candidate

Selecting the VLAN interface to advertise as a BSR candidate.


bsr-candidate source-ip-vlan [vid] 
no bsr-candidate source-ip-vlan [vid] 
router pim bsr-candidate source-ip-vlan [vid]
no router pim bsr-candidate source-ip-vlan [vid]

Configures the router to advertise itself as a candidate PIM-SM BSR on the VLAN interface specified by source-ip-vlan [vid] , and enables BSR candidate operation. This makes the router eligible to be elected as the BSR for the PIM-SM domain in which it operates. Note that one BSR candidate VLAN interface is allowed per-router. The no form of the command deletes the BSR source IP VLAN configuration and also disables the router from being a BSR candidate, if this option has been enabled.(See the BSR-candidate command, below.)
