Br-tun and br-int is showing up in the ODL controller, but is not connected. Below are the commands from the openstack controller

do you mean, switches are present in the topology, but there is not link between them? Can you please paste the ovs-ofctl output on both br-tun and br-int. Also can you please run wireshark on the compute node and see if br-tun bridge is receiving the LLDP packets and also its sending it back to controller or not.

@Anil--Thanks for replying. I pasted the openflow commands here. Please let me know.

@Anil- Wireshark is not showing the br-tun in the interface list..

I had issues in updating the topology of ovs switchs and connectivity between them when i was testing the odl using robotframework with simulated topology. At that time of testing i was using slow performance system. When i upgraded my controller PC to higher end system i was able to clearly see the topology in GUI spontaneously. Maybe you also have the similar issue. Try running controller in higher end systems

I am using high end system but my ovs-swicth s1 is not able to connect with controller. @Madhu which version of ODL you are using hydrogen or Helium? @Chandra :- In Helium , I think this issue is because of controller is not having any feature regarding openflowplugin. There should be some way to patch Openflowplugin with controller. Thanks Devesh

I am using hydrogen release. I can see the openflow nodes from the VMs. But I don't see the connection between the br-tun and br-int. Can you please let me know what to look on the controller and compute?
