configure ipmroute add
Adds a static multicast route to the multicast routing table.
|default||Specifies default gateway.|
|source-net||Specifies an IP address/mask length.|
|mask-len||Mask length for the IP multicast source's subnet. Range is [1-32].|
|mask||Specifies a subnet mask.|
|protocol||Unicast routing protocol that is to be used for route learning.|
|rpf-address||Next hop through which the multicast source can be reached.|
|metric||Specifies a cost metric.|
|vr-name||Specifies the virtual router to which the route is added.|
The following defaults apply:
- vr-name—VR of the current CLI context
This command allows you to statically configure where multicast sources are located (even though the unicast routing table has different entries). It allows you to configure a multicast static route in such a way as to have non-congruent topology for Unicast and Multicast topology and traffic.
The following example configures a multicast static route for all multicast sources within network subnet 192.168.0.0/16. Those sources are reachable through the gateway 18.104.22.168.
configure ipmroute add 192.168.0.0/16 22.214.171.124
The following example configures multicast static route for all sources via a single gateway with a metric of 100:
configure ipmroute add 0.0.0.0/0 126.96.36.199 100
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.6.
