Hi Mohammed,

you're stating, that you've vIST running an your core, that means the boot flag "spbm-config-mode" is set to true (default). An implementation of vIST requires an existing configuration and activation of SPBM.
Therefore MC routing with SPBM should be possible to enable.

Dear Mat,
I have found an issue during below suggested configurations that, already our both core switches are running under Virtual IST protocol and for this the boot config flags spbm-config-mode should be disabled.
In this case the commands

spbm 1 multicast enable
spbm 1 ip enable


are not valid. Please advise how to proceed in this vIST environment
Thanks a lot in advance
Regards

As long both providers sending their stream in different Multicast groups it should be possible.

You can see below two different MC groups in same Vlan but each mapped to an dedicated I-SID.

Hello Mat,
That is really awesome to know.
Since we have two separate IPTV channel providers, will it function if we connect both to the same VLAN as per the below configuration suggestions?

Hi Mohamed

just an question regarding your Multicast design.

Why not using the charm and beauty of easy Multicast-Routing with SPB instead of that crappy PIM stuff?

IS-IS will automatically assign an unique I-SID above 16.000.000 for each MC stream and will take care about the routing.

We have Avaya VSP8000 two core switches running on vIST cluster. All the edge swithes (ERS4000) are connected to both core switches under SMLT load balancing.
We have an IPTV network running currently on single VLAN on below config

Core 1:
* IP pim enabled globally
* IPTV VLAN ID 100
* IPTV interface ip 192.168.100.1
*IPTV VLAN:
interface Vlan 100
ip address 192.168.100.1 255.255.252.0 5
ip pim enable
ip rsmlt
ip rsmlt holdup-timer 9999
exit
ip pim static-rp
ip pim static-rp 239.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 192.168.100.1
ip pim static-rp 239.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 192.168.100.2

ip rsmlt peer-address 192.168.100.2 64:6a:52:aa:xx:xx 25
ip rsmlt edge-support

Core 2:
*IP pim enabled globally
* IPTV VLAN ID 100
* IPTV interface ip 192.168.100.2
*IPTV VLAN:
interface Vlan 100
ip address 192.168.100.2 255.255.252.0 5
ip pim enable
ip igmp immediate-leave
ip rsmlt
ip rsmlt holdup-timer 9999
exit
ip pim static-rp
ip pim static-rp 239.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 192.168.100.1
ip pim static-rp 239.0.0.0/255.0.0.0 192.168.100.2

ip rsmlt peer-address 192.168.100.1 64:6a:52:aa:xx:xx 25
ip rsmlt edge-support


Edge Switches:
interface vlan 100
ip igmp snooping
ip igmp proxy
exit

=====================
Now my question is, we got IPTV channels from ISP and I can stream IPTV channels through VLC player from ISP when directly connecting my PC to ISP router. I am facing challenges to integrate these ISP channels to our existing IPTV server as when we connect this ISP link to our IPTV VLAN, we can not stream their channels. Please advise how to proceed with configuration suggestions

Appreciate swift solution and thanks in advance

If you have a contract with Avaya or Extreme, you can still download the software the same way you did before.  There hasn't been any changes on the website, and the software updates have always required you to register the device with support for software upgrades.

Hello!

Ive joined these forms looking for some assistance in updating my new to me 4850's.

I run a 14 site network using all 5520 switches with the latest firmware.
I purchased the 4850's in hopes of utilizing their 10gb capabilities.

I have not been on avayas site for awhile and was surprised to see they sold off their switches to Extreme. and I've missed the window to download all the old software.

So here lays my predicament.
Extreme has the newer firmware and images from 5.9 onward hosted on their site. To upgrade to 5.9 and above I need SW:5.6.5
Of course the used switches came with 5.6.2.

The avaya rep I used when I purchased a support for my 5520's hasnt returned my calls, I assume they have blasted everything from their possession at this point.

How can I go about finding 5.6.5? Has anyone made an archive of the old versions, or something similar, or a number I can call?

I just hope I'm not completely boned for upgrading these switches.

Appreciate the help.

Arp inspection depends on the DHCP replies to populate the switch's DHCP binding table.  If you tried to use a device with a fixed IP, the switch would not have its MAC in the table and would block the traffic.

I found it strange that it worked on a standalone switch though.  Was arp inspection enabled when in standalone?

Good job figuring it out and letting us know.
