working PIM-Sparse Dense mode need to add one Sparse mode to same group.
I have a singlewire informacast setup working with PIM Sparse Dense mode across multaple sites. I have one meraki enviroment that I need to set up multicast routing to as well.
currently all my interfaces are configured with "ip pim sparse-dense-mode" and nothing else. My meraki equipment only suppors PIM-SM. I know for SM I need to set a RP and am wondering if I set a RP will that break my other sites on Sparse-Dense mode and what is the best way to set that up.
topology working down from source to destination.

interface GigabitEthernet0/0/0 ip address x.x.101.1 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-dense-mode ip igmp query-interval 125
interface Vlan61 (Vlan to WAN) ip address x.x.254.1 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-dense-mode ! interface Vlan101 (same subnet as ISR 4451) ip address x.x.101.3 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-dense-mode
remote sites configured the same, with different IP's/Subnets
interface Vlan61 (Vlan of Wan) ip address x.x.254.18 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-dense-mode ! interface Vlan101(reciving devices vlan) ip address x.x.101.1 255.255.255.0 ip pim sparse-dense-mode
Re: working PIM-Sparse Dense mode need to add one Sparse mode to same group.
As I understand it, Sparse-Dense mode will operate in Sparse mode if there is a RP for the group - so if you create a RP in your Meraki environment, this (as per normal PIM-SM config) should be advertised to all multicast enabled routers - so this group will then become Sparse-Mode for the entire multicast domain.
The question I have is why would you want to operate in Dense-mode rather than Sparse-mode? If there is no application / service reason, then I would test creating a PIM RP (at least 2 RP's - for resilience - with 2 BSR candidates to propogate RP information) & operating the service in Sparse-mode. If you need to continue to operate in Dense-Mode, then you will need to have a multicast boundary between the two environments to avoid it switching a network wide switch to Sparse-mode operation just for the group (assuming you scope the PIM RP accordingly).
Hi there,we are migrating our "old" MPLS-Backbone to Catalyst 9500 / 9300. During this Migration we remarked, that the neighbors (Catalyst 6500 and 6880) are increasing the giants count… I hope somebody can help finding out what is going wrong. Thanks!&nb...

Hi, I want to redistribute OMP routes to BGP, i have the doubt if all of the OMP prefixes located in the local vEdge will be redistributed to BGP or just the connected+static networks located in the vEdge. Also how can i restrict some OMP prefix...
Let's say we have two routers configured as RP candidates for auto-RP: R1 - "advertising" its loopback0 interface IP address 126.96.36.199 as the RP for these groups:188.8.131.52/32184.108.40.206/32220.127.116.11/2418.104.22.168/16 R2 - "advertising" its loopback0 int...
