Setup details:

ODL: Boron PicOS 2.8 Physical switch: Edgecore 7712

Howdy all,

I've created a OVS bridge on one of our switches running Pica8 and have successfully connected OVSDB SB to the Pica8. After that, I went to add ODL as the OF controller on this OVS bridge (br0) using the command ovs-vsctl set-controller br0 tcp: When I do this, OVS shows the is_connected status as true (see below), yet when I go into ODL DLUX, no switch appears in either the "topology" or "nodes" menu's ever...

I've tried this same setup in Beryllium to no avail. Here are the ODL feature's I have installed:

I've confirmed OVS on PicOS is running in OF 1.3 mode as well...

Any ideas?

Apparently this is a feature install issue...? After installing the odl-openflowplugin-all-he feature, I can now see the switches in the "Topology" tab, although they still don't show up in the "Nodes" tab... Anyone know the secret incantation to get Dlux to display the switches properly?
