Use this command to specify the source of Register messages sent by this DR. The specified address must be reachable so that the Rendezvous Point (RP) router can send Register-Stop messages in response. The Register source address is usually the address of the loopback interface, though it can be another physical address. The specified address must be advertised by unicast routing protocols on the DR.
