The feature explorer show that QFX5100 doesn't support "static rendezvous point (RP)" for PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast).
I tried to enter static RP configuration bit on our lab QFX5100 Virtual chassis (Junos 14.1X53-D47) and configuration was commited without error. However I don't have needed devices to create/test whole multicast scenario and validate the multicast streaming indeed works.
Does somebody have practical experience with static RP for PIM configuration on QFX5100 virtual chassis or standalone QFX5100 please? I find it bit odd that this feature is not supported on this platform.
One of the requirement for an PIM RP is to decapsulate an PIM-Register packet which a first-hop router sends to the RP during initial start of multicast traffic. I haven't tested QFX5100, but my guess it the hardware doesn't support the tunneling interfaces like pd- which are needed for decapsulating the register message.
