Configuring PIM on HP A5800 Switch

First make a copy of the configuration file on the tftp server:

backup startup-configuration to 192.168.1.100

To configure the PIM on the HP A5800 switch, connect to the switch via telnet and enter the following commands:

1) Enable the multicast routing switch and pim-sm in vlan 963 which comes from the provider.

system-view
multicast routing-enable
interface Vlan-interface 963
ip address 172.24.24.158 255.255.255.252
pim sm
quit

2) Turn on pim-sm and igmp in vlan 964 on which IPTV will be broadcast to the local network.

interface Vlan-interface 964
ip address 172.25.25.25 255.255.192.0
pim sm
igmp enable
quit

3) We’ll assign the static ip from which the multicast is broadcast.

pim
static-rp 10.0.200.200
quit

4) Add the route to ip from which the multicast is broadcast.

ip route-static 10.0.200.200 255.255.255.255 Vlan-interface963 172.24.24.157

5) Suppose that we accept multicast on vlan 963 tag.

interface Bridge-Aggregation1
port hybrid vlan 963 tagged

6) We will configure any free port for iptv verification and connect to it a computer for example with a playlist in the VLC player.

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5
port access vlan 964

To test the health and diagnostics, you can use for example the following commands:

display pim interface
display pim interface verbose
display pim rp-info
display pim bsr-info
display pim neighbor
display pim routing-table
display igmp interface
display pim control-message counters
display pim claimed-route
