Configure the RP-Candidate Hold Time

The hold-time value is the amount of time the candidate RP advertisement is valid. When you configure the RP-candidate hold time, you set the hold time of the component when it is a candidate RP in the local domain. The mode must already be set to sparse.

  1. Associate the VLAN 7 interface with PIMv6 component 1.
    SEFOS(config)# interface vlan 7
    SEFOS(config-if)# ipv6 pim componentId 1
    SEFOS(config-if)# end
  2. Enter the PIMv6 component mode for PIMv6 component 1.
    SEFOS(config)# ip pim component 1
  3. Configure the RP-candidate hold time to 30 seconds for PIMv6 component 1.
    SEFOS(pim-comp)# rp-candidate holdtime 30
    SEFOS(pim-comp)# end
  4. Review the hold time value.
    SEFOS# show ipv6 pim component 1
