    Hi Andrew,

    When using PIM-SM-Edge the switch cannot be configured as CRP or CBSR.

    You need the Rendezvous point and Bootstrap router elected in a device with Core license.

    Perfect. Write this limitation in the manual.

    Hi Andrew, you can find the information below in 16.1 User Guide:

    PIM Edge Mode is a subset of PIM that operates with the following restrictions:

    - The switch does not act as a candidate rendezvous point (CRP).

    - The switch does not act as a candidate bootstrap router (CBSR).

    - At most, four active PIM-SM interfaces are permitted. There is no restriction on the number of

    passive interfaces (within the limit of the maximum IP interfaces).

    Note that you can have up to 4 interfaces instead of 2.

    Please let me know what version you are using then I can track this information.

    Thanks.

    Sales rogue :(

    I find this record in the manual.

    ExtremeXOS version 12.6.3.2 v1263b2 I'm Not going to change something.

    I have the fully functional switch with Core license on another locaton. I'll try to setup this one without CRP.

    Hi Andrew, using another switch with Core License is enough to have PIM-SM working.

    Only one RP/CBSR is need. However, if you have 2 switches with Core License you can use both with CRP/CBSR configuration for redundancy purpose.
