  1. When I specify a role for a node where I run ODL is this role needs to be 'member-X' or its just needs to be string which distinguish this nodes from others? I refer to configuration described here. Could I use for example hostname as role name?
  2. What features needs to be enabled for creating cluster of ODL which will be integrated with OpenStack through odl-ovsdb-openstack? I know that odl-jolokia is now available, do I also need to enable odl-mdsal-clustering?

I use ODL Beryllium SR2 together with OpenStack Mitaka.

1) You can use any name that is uniquely identified the hosts in the cluster. But you need to use the same name in the REST command to retrieve the shard information:

For example if you use host name as the shard member id then the command should be: GET http://<host>:8181/jolokia/read/org.opendaylight.controller:Category=Shards,name=<host>-shard-inventory-config,type=DistributedConfigDatastore

2) The features/bundles you need to set up cluster are:

feature:install odl-mdsal-clustering odl-openflowplugin-flow-services odl-mdsal-all odl-restconf-all odl-ovsdb-openstack bundle:install -s mvn:org.jolokia/jolokia-osgi/1.1.5

Hope it help
