Implementation of Multicasting on 6500 Switches

When Implementing the multicasting on 6500 Switches:
  1. Should we have to configure IP PIM auto RP listener on the RP itself?
  2. No, the auto-RP listener is only needed on non-RP mcast routers to find the existence of an auto-RP.
  3. Do we need to configure IP PIM sparse-mode even on the interface connecting to the source of the multicast?
If it's a Layer3 interface, yes. If it's a L2 interface (access vlan or trunk port) no. Further reference of MSDP for RP redundancy see the below link: Please click here for the Configuring Multicast Source Discovery Protocol guide.
