Configure the BSR Candidate

A BSR is a dynamically elected router within a PIMv6 domain. When you configure a PIMv6 BSR candidate, you set the preference value for the local interface as a candidate bootstrap router. The no form of the command sets the default preference value for the local interface as a candidate bootstrap router.

  1. Associate the VLAN 7 interface with the PIMv6 component 1.
    SEFOS(config)# interface vlan 7
    SEFOS(config-if)# ipv6 pim componentId 1
    SEFOS(config-if)# end
  2. Set the BSR-candidate preference to 20 for the VLAN 7 interface.
    SEFOS(config)# interface vlan 7
    SEFOS(config-if)# ipv6 pim bsr-candidate 20
    SEFOS(config-if)# end
  3. Review the BSR priority.
    SEFOS# show ipv6 pim bsr
    PIMv2 Bootstrap Configuration For Component 1
